VII. Chakra Clockwork
Yugas, Epochs and Ages of Man
“They [ancient philosophers] divided the interminable periods of human existence on this planet into cycles, during each of which mankind gradually reached the culminating point of highest civilization and gradually relapsed into abject barbarism. To what eminence the race in its progress had several times arrived may be feebly surmised by the wonderful monuments of old, still visible, and the descriptions given by Herodotus of other marvels of which no traces now remain.”
– Helena Blavatsky
Not only were our ancestors well versed in the concept of vast cycles within time, they also were aware of the affects these cycles had on life on earth. They describe the process by which man’s physical and spiritual substance shifts into new forms. While those of modern learning will automatically assume that humankind has gradually stepped up the ladder of creation towards the present ‘apex’ of civilized society, the observable evidence, as well as the testimony of ancient relatives, deny this conclusion, primarily, by proving that we are currently nowhere near the apex, and secondly, by demonstrating many of the signs of a society that actually did live during the ‘crest of the great wave’.
Just like an individual who is born, matures and dies, the body of human culture does the very same. Civilizations follow this pattern and so does the entirety of life on earth. When our life ends, we have reached another rung on the ladder, and our next life will develop the soul even further. In the same way, when life on earth is destroyed and starts fresh, the experience gained in the last episode will carry through to provide new direction for the development of the consecutive worlds.
In the Vedas, the ages are called Yugas. These four periods represent stages in a great cycle. One arc of the cycle progresses from Satya Yuga (Golden Age), Treta Yuga (Silver Age), Dvapara Yuga (Bronze Age) finally to the Kali Yuga (Iron Age), the lowest form. From here it begins the slow ascent back up, through Dvapara and Treta, to the Satya Yuga. In Sanskrit, Satya means truth. Therefore, the Satya Yuga is best defined as the Age of Truth. In the Laws of Manu, one of the earliest descriptions of the yugas, the length of these periods are respectively 4800, 3600, 2400, and 1200 years, in a relation of 4:3:2:1. This means that 12,000 years will see the passing of all the ages once, but to continue all the way, (ascending back up to the Satya Yuga), 24,000 years is necessary – very close to a precessional cycle.
Let us also add, that it divides the precessional cycle equally into twenty-fourths – just as the early civilizations of the Middle East had cut the day into 24 hours; twelve of light and 12 of darkness. Therefore, by adjusting the cycle of 25,920 years to 24,000, they allowed themselves to describe the sacred clockwork of the [2, 3, 6, 12 and] 24-spoked wheel, which we shall soon see.
Another interpretation implies that the years being spoken of are actually years of the devas or demigods, which equate to 360 of our years. In this case, each period must be multiplied by 360. Thus, the 12,000 years it takes to traverse through each sign once (or half the precessional cycle) multiplied by 360 gives the length of this ‘greater harmonic’ cycle as 4,320,000 years – that special number again. Including the return back up through each Yuga, the whole cycle would take 8,640,000 years, which is also equivalent to the number of seconds in 100 days, once again demonstrating the concept of harmonics among these numbers. The more popular interpretation, however, focuses on the smaller period, though it is likely that this confusion is deliberate. The system was designed to hint at the fact that these harmonics operate on every scale. Therefore, both interpretations are likely correct for the most part – these cycles exist in the thousands of years just as much as in the millions and trillions of years.
Within our 24,000 year cycle, we have only recently passed into the ascending Dvapara Yuga. Though exact dates are disputed, this generally occurred around 1700 AD with the conclusion of the Kali Yuga. If we nudge the numbers to try and fit the cycle into the exact 25,920 length, then we must allow some flexibility. For instance, by some accounts, the Kali Yuga had transitioned from descent to ascent in the year 500 AD. In other words, 500 AD marked the lowest point on the timeline. Yet perhaps ‘year One’ or the birth of Christ, makes more sense as the ground zero of time calculation. Perhaps the Kabbalistic calculations were on par with Hindu, or even more accurate, and somehow this knowledge was used to set humanities clock to the midnight point.
Yet again, most Western Calendars tend to disorient (to turn away from the East) one from the natural cycles. Still, the margin of error is allowable. Whether it was 500 ad or year 1, it makes perfect sense, as the collapse of Rome and other events had brought in the dark ages at this point. As we regress through history we ascend in spiritual and social understanding – from Rome to Greece, Greece to Egypt and finally, we find the apex of the last Satya Yuga occurring at 11,500 BC. The next climax of wisdom is due to occur roughly in the year 12,500 AD. In other words, for the next 10,000 years, things will only get better for us, as we climb towards the the true heights of wisdom.
It also means that we should protect every single remaining artifact from the last Golden Age, and attempt to learn from it, rather than brand it as primitive superstition. This was the wisdom of Hinduism from the earliest ages, and the concept has not shifted even though recent centuries have painted pictures of our 12,000-13,000 year old ancestors as barbarians and cave dwellers. As the new facts assemble themselves, it appears that this was a time of high prosperity and great wisdom. It was a time when some of the most astonishing accomplishments of math, science, art, music, medicine, astronomy, and architecture occurred. It fits our theory like a glove.
As these ages pass from Satya to Kali, so the attributes of man descend. The ages correspond to the four varnas of Hinduism. These describe types of people based on their positive and negative character. The Satya Yuga corresponds to the Brahmana Varna, or that which is entirely virtuous. The Treta matches the Kshatriya Varna which is three quarters virtue and one quarter sin. The Dvapara Yuga is half sin and half virtue and is related to the Vaishya Varna while the Kali Yuga represents the Shudra Varna which is mostly sin and very little virtue.
In The Holy Science, Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri states that the whole cycle is caused by the orbit of our solar system around another star or point of gravity called the grand center, Vishnunabhi, or the seat of Brahma. As our solar system orbits this center, he claims, we come closer and further from it. When we are closest, then the spiritual mysteries of nature are easy to see and understand. At the time of greatest distance, we are able to conceive only of the gross material existence. In our present condition, the Dvapara Yuga, we are only partly developed, and therefore we can only understand some of the creative forces, such as electricity and magnetism.
This object is also called the Black Star. It is unseen, as no light can escape it. Though we are aware that the earth’s axis is what causes the precessional cycle and points us slowly towards the consecutive corners of the universe, is it impossible to imagine that precession is caused by this slow orbit of our solar system around another point of gravity? The more we understand about the cosmos, the more we tend to realize that most if not all stars, are in fact, binary stars. We see Sirius A, but Sirius B, its counterpart, is invisible. Not all stars are spinning together with another body at the core of their system, yet all are balanced, at least by nearby ‘Black Objects’.
Imagine cream being poured into a cup of coffee. The spirals we see are caused by a universal principle known as convection. This is a method for diffusing a substance from areas of high concentration to those of lower concentration. Our universe, galaxy, solar system, planet, and even our own bodies and atoms are swirling in this manner, pushed by action and reaction. As our galaxy spirals outwards, is it not possible to think that within an arm of this galaxy might exist some spinning wheels that are smaller than the galaxy, yet larger than our solar system?
Perhaps all the black holes are in fact, as science declares, objects so dense that their gravitic pulls prevents even light from escaping, thereby making them natural objects that are invisible, yet display gravity effects on us. Perhaps, alternatively, all manifested cosmic bodies require by their nature an equal but separate un-manifest gap in creation. What if, in order to form a planet or star, the material is pulled from a higher dimension and leaves a hole in the fabric? What if, like the Federal Reserve based economy, all wealth (substance) is formed out of debt (negative, dark matter)? This is not far from the line of thinking of the Egyptians as well as Hindus.
As our solar system orbits this Black Star, our axis remains tied to it, and so it turns us slowly to the many directions. At least, this is an understanding held by many in the East, though largely unknown in the West. It was virtually unheard of until Mme Blavatsky and the Theosophists introduced the first english translations of Sanskrit literature to American audiences.
Seeing as the Yuga cycle is within seven percent of the ‘Great Year’ (or Platonic Year, from the teachings of Plato…), it is likely that precession is the key to the Yugas. As we’ve already mentioned, the astrological ages split this same time cycle into twelve portions, one for each sign of the zodiac. As we progress through the ages different qualities are learned and mastered. Like the yugas, there is no end or beginning to this cycle, but only effects that pour in to our world in cyclical progression and both of these chronological systems map this progression.
Similar systems were also used by many other societies including the early Kabbalists, who wrote the scheme into the Pentateuch. H. P. Blavatsky writes that “The ‘ages’ of the Hindus differ but little from those of the Greeks, Romans and even the Jews… The chronology which separates Moses from the creation of the world by only four generations seems ridiculous, merely because the Christian clergy would enforce it upon the world literally. The Kabalists know that these generations stand for ages of the world. The allegories which, in the Hindu calculations, embrace the whole stupendous sweep of the four ages, are cunningly made in the Mosaic books, through the obliging help of Masorah, to cram into the small period of two millenniums and a half (2513)!”
The chronology behind Judaism, and therefore Christianity, was not accepted as authoritative until the twelfth century. In the first books of the bible, the events reach into the past only about two centuries before the Exodus. All other records are not to be found and can only be reached through kabbalistic calculations, and even then, one must hold the key to these calculations.
The Christian timeline follows the form as well. In this version, the Golden Age or Satya Yuga reached from Adam to Abraham. The Silver Age spanned from Abraham to David. The Copper Age was from David to the captivity of the Jews and from then on was the Iron Age.
In Daniel chapter 2 beginning in verse 32 we find another reference to the world ages. “This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay…
“And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.”
The final condition represents the current world – the strength of Iron strewn about here and there, but mixed with ‘miry clay’. Does this not describe our confused collective of global governments? An elite structure, divided against itself? Two separate races that cannot breed together?
Perhaps one of the greatest descriptions of this cycle comes from Mexico. Today more and more attention has been drawn to the early Meso-American calendar systems, specifically the ‘long count’. The Mayans used several systems for counting time. For instance, a twenty-day cycle, called a winal, in which every day had its own specific name, was sort of like a month for them. It repeated itself 18 times to arrive at a tun, or 360 days. Then five, “nameless’ days were added to make a 365 day year. This system is very close to that of Egypt which also had a year of 360 days to which five days were added. This may have been the only system used by the majority of the early Americans for purposes of remembering specific dates, agricultural markers and other personal uses. It was called a Haab year. We shall soon see as well, that the most ancient Hindu calendar also uses a 360 day year. Is this merely because it makes for easier circular calculations? Perhaps. Though it also a balanced recognition of Sun and moon. The Solar Year is 365.242 days and Lunar Year is approximately 354 days. Therefore, the average of Solar and Lunar years lands right on 360.
In a winal of 20 k’in, or days, each day was given a name. At the same time, each day was given a number as well, ranging from one to thirteen. On the fourteenth day, it begins again with one. This is called the Trecena Cycle. If these two cycles both start at day one, it will take them 260 days before they synchronize again. This is called the Tzolkin Cycle. The Tzolkin Cycle seems to be directly related to the motions of our solar system, and served as a sort of common denominator of orbit durations and conjunction periods of bodies within it. The 260 (26) harmonic is echoed in the 26,000 year precession of equinoxes and the 26 million year ‘evolutionary upgrades’.
The thirteen numbered days correspond to a rising and falling spiritual current, which continually ascends to the seventh day, and fades out to the thirteenth. The twenty named days, however, each represent earthly or material qualities. They are hieroglyphs, and similarly, hold intrinsic qualities, represented symbolically. You were born on one of these 20 days, thus, you’re whole life is overshadowed by one of these 20 archetypes. For example, I am a T’zikin, or Bird of Power – the Eagle or Quetzal. You can look up your birthday with an online calculator, but I would suggest getting a copy of Carlos Barrios’ The Book of Destiny. With this book, you can not only come to understand the calendar better, but also share life changing insight with any friends or family. You can look up anyone’s birthday and describe to them the qualities of their day of birth. I will simply state that everyone I have ever done this for, has been immensely grateful.
How this system was developed is unknown, though the practicality of it is immense. A short time using the calendar in one’s daily life is generally enough to demonstrate it’s effectiveness. Those who use it, are living out every day based on a very real knowledge of what planetary influences are pushing or pulling them towards. It is a map of the currents that are constantly flowing through nature – designed so that we may not have to fight such currents, but might utilize them. It helped to guide life in ancient America by describing the characteristics of the specific day, and it still functions today. For this reason, one’s name was given as the day they were born. For instance, one’s name might be 8 Jaguar, (the numbered day and the named day) and this would describe their birthday, and therefore, personality. Thus, there were really only 260 potential names.
It should be mentioned that these calendar systems were shared between many civilizations at the time and earlier in central American cultures. We only use the Mayan/Aztec version because it is the most complete, most recent, most in tact and easiest to understand. As for the mapping out of world ages, another calendar was used. This was a system for calculating much larger periods of time – the Long Count Calendar, which we find sculpted into a massive stone, now kept at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Until one see’s it in person, they may not realize that it is roughly 12 feet in diameter and weighs 25 tons.
This begins with the k’in, or day,
Twenty k’in make up a winal, like a month, (20 days)
Eighteen winals make up a tun, like a year, (360 days)
Twenty tuns make a k’atun, around twenty years, (7200 days = 19.71 years)
Twenty k’atuns make a b’ak’tun, of 394.3 years (or 144,000 days),
And Thirteen b’ak’tuns adds up to the length of the long count calendar itself – 1,872,000 days, approximately 5,125 years.
So what is this period referring to? It’s important to note that this calendar begins in the year that we know of as 3114 BC. In other words, a cycle of 5,125 years began in the fourth millennia BC and ends in 2012 AD.
In the same century, we find the establishment of the Egyptian kingdom. This is when the pharaoh Menes of the fifth Dynasty united southern and northern Egypt. This date has also been associated with a very sudden leap in the Sumerian writing system. This transition brought forth a more advanced system of documentation as pictographs became more like hieroglyphs. This was also geologically a period of great volcanic activity and perhaps one of unstable climates. As we have noted since the first chapter, 3000 BC is roughly the beginning of our history. It is when writing began in Sumer, Egypt and the Far East. Regardless, this cycle is minor compared to the larger one.
Though the length of the calendar is only 5,125 years, it references itself as the fifth and last of these cycles. In the center of the calendar are four distinct squares which each describe one of the previous epochs of man. It references the previous four ages and marked ours as the last of five represented by the central face. That is to say, a larger cycle was completed with our b’ak’tun’s end. This cycle was one of 25,625 years – a nearly perfect precessional cycle (98.9 percent accurate, [using the figure 25,920])!
It seems clear that the goal of all these systems was aimed at capturing the Precession of the Equinoxes within a mathematical framework that would help to describe our ascensions and descents. It seems as though in our ancient past, the wise people never assumed that man steadily arose in skill and wisdom, but acknowledged that our intellect and intuition rose and fell with the tides of civilization just as the land and sea had continually risen and sank.
For further reading on the Maya calendar, see John Major Jenkins’ Maya Cosmogenesis 2012. This book was given to me long before 2012 came to pass, by John West himself, who was a friend of Jenkins and highly regarded his interpretations of the calendar. Indeed, Jenkins was one of the few who even took any note of the calendar before the 2012 ‘craze’ began. I was lucky enough to have corresponded with him to some degree before he sadly passed in 2017. I still consider his works to be the foundation of Long Count Calendar research. José Argüelles was also an influential figure, though his Dreamspell Calendar is a somewhat controversial offshoot of the basic system.
The Precessional cycle is certainly a major cog in the evolutionary clock. This is confirmed by the fact that cultures such as Vedic India, early Mesoamerican societies and even the Kabbalists, who derived their wisdom from Egypt, have all gone to great lengths to preserve the knowledge of this cycle. However, there are also other patterns described by the ancients that are much larger and may be just as significant.
One example is found at Nineveh, the Assyrian City located in present day Iraq. Here, a number was found from clay tablets – a particularly large number that was apparently realized after many long calculations and seemed to be greatly significant to the people of Nineveh. Maurice Chatelain describes;
“It consists of fifteen digits: 195,955,200,000,000… Many specialists in different countries tried to find out what this fantastic number could have meant three thousand years ago to the Assyrians… It seemed that Assurbanipal must have found this number somewhere, probably in Egypt or Chaldea, or even in Persia.”
He found that the number equaled out to 70 multiplied by 60 seven times. He then remembered that the Sumerians used calculations based on sixty, so his attention turned to the Sumerians, who lived very nearby Ninevah and at the same time. He remembered that they were great astronomers and they happened to be responsible for dividing the day into into 24 hours of 60 minutes, or 86,400 seconds. Pretty quickly, he figured out that the number was evenly divisible by 86,400, implying perhaps, that it was a period of time. Specifically, it was equal to 2,268,000,000 days of 86,400 seconds or 6,209,445 years. But what was this 6.2 million year period referring to?
Well, first off, ten of these cycles would mirror our 62 million year ‘genetic upgrade’, not to mention four of them comes quite close to the 26 million year trend. More surprisingly though, is that this time cycle comes out to be almost exactly 240 precessional cycles. By dividing the Ninevah Constant by the number of years in the precessional cycle (25,920), we get an even 7,560,000,000 – which, divided by 86,400 (seconds per day) gives 87,500 days, or about 240.2 years.
Either way you look at it, it is showing either 25,920 cycles of 240 years or 240 cycles of 25,920 years. Here we see the ’24 spoked wheel’ again. Unless you choose to believe that it is divided so perfectly by the precessional number of years because it represents years, rather than seconds. This would mean that the number represents 196 trillion years. I am not making such a claim, but merely beginning to show how these numbers work together, and how they function as harmonics. The Yuga Cycle is similarly vague in whether it applies to our standard years, or if this entire timeline must be multiplied by 360, essentially turning a day to a year in terms of calculation. It is no mistake that both interpretations are used, as both are correct. The two cycles are harmonics of each other; each are cogs within a still greater clockwork.
Chatelain goes on to observe: “This enormous number of Ninevah could very well be the long lost magic number called the “Great Constant of the Solar System,” the number that alchemists, astrologers and astronomers had been looking for for a very long time. While their ancestors were familiar with it more than 3,000 years ago…
If the Number of Ninevah really was the Great Constant of the Solar System, it had to be an exact multiple of any revolution or conjunction period of any planet, comet or satellite of the solar system. It took some time to do this work and lots of numbers, but just as I had thought and expected, every period of revolution or conjunction of all solar system bodies calculated by the constant of Ninevah corresponded exactly, down to several decimal points, with the values given in the modern tables of United States astronomers…”
It would appear that this number held a similar function as the 260 day Tzolkin Cycle of Mexico, though it was considerably more accurate. The Tzolkin was a simpler, ‘rougher’ estimate. They are both numbers and spans of time that can be used as a common denominator of all the cycles within our solar system. They are constants used to measure the various orbits, conjunctions and other motions of all such bodies. Think of the calendars as maps that describe the incoming influences of celestial bodies. In this way, the Ninevah Constant is the key and compass rose to that map.
Now let us put all these numbers together. Do not feel dismayed if it has not made sense yet. We needed to see a few of them on their own before being able to view the greater perfection they all fit into. We find them in the Great Pyramid, at Angkor Wat, in ancient mythology and texts. We see them dividing up both time and space.
Robert Edward Grant is one of the many who have noticed and studied these numbers and he has made some of the most shocking connections. His work with the Resonance Academy including The Etymology of Number, breaks this code open and he decrypts much more than I can relate in a simple summary. However, I must make an attempt to demonstrate the divinity of such numerals and hope that the reader will follow up with Grant’s work. The numbers work with feet, meters, cubits, seconds, days and years – literally any unit of measurement of time or space! Let’s remember the set of doubles that form the core of this harmonic system –
The DOUBLES OF TWENTY SEVEN: 27, 54, 108, 216, 432, and 864.
There are 86,400 seconds in a day.
The equatorial diameter of the Sun is 864,000 miles, making its radius 432,000. (At 99.94% accuracy)
The mean diameter of Jupiter is 86,400 miles making its radius 43,200. (99.75% accuracy) Jupiter’s average year is 4,320 days.
Saturn’s orbital speed is 864,000 kilometers/day (Or 10 KM/second).
The orbital rate of the moon is 86,400 km/day (or 1km/second).
The circumference of the Earth in nautical miles is 21,600.
The number of minutes in a 360 compass is also 21,600 (360×60).
The diameter of the moon is 2160 miles.
Each astrological age in the precessional cycle is 2160 years.
Thus 2160 x 12 = 25,920
And then there is a companion sequence…
The DOUBLES OF NINE; 9, 18, 36, 72, 144
or, (3 x 3), (3 x 6), (3 x 12), (3 x 24), (3 x 48)
The 36, or 360, obviously gives us the circle in degrees, and 72 x 5 = 360, therefore a five pointed star or pentagram has it’s arms each 72 degrees apart. Similarly, every point on the icosahedron grid of Earth is 72 degrees from the next. This is why Angkor Wat is 72 degrees east of Giza and 180 degrees east and west of the Nazca Lines. We will remember that the the cycle of precession shifts one degree over 72 years.
The Hebrew Kabbalah describes ’72 names of GOD’, or the Schemhamphoras. Each is made with three letters, for a total of 216 letters. This is reflected in the film Pi, in which a man is searching for a secret 216 digit number, which is thought by Jewish mystics to be the true name of GOD. According to some, the 216 digit ‘Name of GOD’ may lie hidden in Exodus, chapters 19, 20 and 21. In one printout of the number shown in the movie, lines 2, 3, and 4 all begin with 6’s, making a vertical column of 3 sixes. 6 x 6 x 6 = 216.
Of course, we know 666 to be a number associated with the devil or Satan, but does it not have a wider meaning? Perhaps we are seeing that the ‘devil’ exists within GOD, and is but one of GOD’s numerical formations or emanations. Perhaps both the ‘devil’ and 666 loosely represent what was at one time recognized as the concept of incarnation or material form. Perhaps both stem from the Egyptian Set – the principle of Spiritual substance being encased or entrapped within dense material. Then, perhaps, we are dealing with an agent of GOD, not inherently evil (like the later Satan), but a metaphor of the human condition. He rules over the ‘hell’ that is this world – thick material – the 3rd dimension. He represents the obstacle to spiritual liberation, as none can take their heavenly form while trapped within human incarnations and weighed down with karma; by mental states imposed by the fixed density. Yet who dares to claim that this character is not found within the all encompassing GOD? If this is not an aspect of GOD, then how could it exist, if GOD is truly ‘All and Everything’? Perhaps we are merely talking about a metaphor of the physical plane, and in such a case, it might not be considered blasphemy to posit that both this ‘Devil’, as well as the Demi-urge, are emanations of that which is above, the truly omnipotent GOD.
If 666 relates to physical creation, then it may tie in nicely to the cube, as 6 is the cubic root of 216. (6 x 6 = 36 and 36 x 6 = 216) The cube itself has 6 sides. Therefore, 216 is the number of sides of a cube, cubed. We might also notice that 1 cubed x 2 cubed x 3 cubed = 1 x 8 x 27 = 216.
How odd that the ARCH-ANGEL is also associated with a cube. Metatron’s Cube is a combination of all the Platonic Solids into a single shape that is considered one of the most divine of all sacred geometric expressions. It could be called, in one sense, the ‘face of GOD’. One can see within this shape (a corner view of a cube), the Star of David. It divides the circle evenly by 6 points.
Six points distributed around a circle divide 360 into 6 SETs of 60 degrees each.
One could also call them 6 ARCHes or ANGLES of 60 degrees each…
Within Kabbalistic gematria, such numerical word games are often played. Perhaps the arcs and angles are what is truly meant, in one sense, by the Angels an the Arch-Angel. Perhaps they are not Angels of light, but angles of light. Speaking of the Bible, in Revelations 7, verse four we read: “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
Some believe that this refers to 144,000 people who will ascend to the Kingdom of Heaven in the end times. There is another interpretation however, if one simply looks to Eastern thought for a clue.
The many SEVENS of Revelations are central to this mystery. In some cases, like the seven stars and golden candlesticks of Chapter 1, verse 20 (or the Menorah…) we are dealing with the seven stars of the Pleiades, or ‘Seven Sisters’. There is a much greater implication made by all these sevens as well, but for the moment, let us note the Seven Seals. These are referring to our own anatomy.
The Seven Seals of Revelations are your seven Chakras.
“The number of them which were sealed” is 144,000. Therefore, those that found the Kingdom of Heaven were those who activated their seven chakras and thus, turned on their third eye and enjoyed free travel on the astral plane, or Kingdom of Heaven, or ‘land flowing with milk and honey’. So then, 144,000 individuals will turn on their ‘inner’ eyes? Not quite. In Kundalini Yoga, we find that the Root Chakra has 4 petals, the navel, 6; the solar plexus, 10; the heart, 12; and the throat, 16. These combined equal 48 petals.
The Third Eye Chakra represents twice the power of these lower five combined. Therefore, it is given two petals, to represent the doubling of 48, and so it’s number is 96. Obviously 96 petals would be much harder to draw than two.
The Crown Chakra is said to be 1,000 times more powerful than the lower six chakras combined. This becomes simple math…
4 + 6 +10 + 12 +16 + 96 = 144
144 x 1,000 = 144,000 petals in the Crown Chakra…
Thus the “number of them which were sealed” (by the seven seals) refers to the number of ‘points of light’ within the Crown Chakras of such individuals, shining like a beacon in the astral dimension. It is not the number of individuals allowed entry. The Kingdom of Heaven has no maximum capacity! Indeed, anyone on earth could make the cut if they so willed it. If they cleanse their own karma and set their seven wheels spinning, they will certainly find the Kingdom. John, the Kabbalist author of Revelations, was well aware of subtle human anatomy, and this is the greatest key to the prophetic book… Jesus as well, spoke often of the third eye and chakras, behind veils of symbolism, as we shall see in Part II.
This sacred number, 12,000 times 12,000, describes a fully divine human; one who no longer needs a physical body. It holds a particular magic that ties the whole harmonic system together in a sense. For starters,
144 x .5 = 72
144 x 1.5 = 216
144 x 2.5 = 360
144 x 3 = 432
144 x 5 = 720
144 x 6 = 864
144 x 90 = 12,960 (half precession)
144 x 180 = 25,920 (full precession)
1440 minutes in a day (24 x 60)
144 hours in 6 days of creation (24 x 6)
Have you ever wondered why beer and soda come in 12 packs? They can be split evenly by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 12 people… Twelve is a good number for that, so imagine how universal must be the number that is 12 times 12.
It is not only the square of twelve, but also the twelfth Fibonacci number. The Fibonacci Sequence is derived by adding a number to that which precedes it in the sequence, beginning with 1 + 1 = 2. Then the first three are 1, 1, 2 so we add together the last of these two (1 and 2) hence, 1 + 2 = 3. So the sequence becomes 1, 1, 2, 3. Then 2 + 3 = 5, and so on. This sequence closely mimics the Golden Ratio described by Phi, and it would, perfectly if, rather than beginning with 1+1, it began with 1+ Phi, or (Phi – 1) + 1. Phi, being irrational and therefore endless, can be rounded to 1.618 or even simply .618, as it is a relationship of .618 to 1 or, 1 to 1.618. They form the exact same proportion and since this is the only number which can do such a thing, it is known as the Golden Ratio. That is it’s beauty!
.618… is 61.8… percent of 1
1 is 61.8… percent of 1.618…
As the Fibonacci numbers spiral higher and higher, the relationship of each to its preceding digit hones in closer and closer on the divine .618 ratio.
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 59…
1 to 1 =1
1 to 2 = .5
2 to 3 = .666…
3 to 5 = .6
5 to 8 = .625…
8 to 13 = .615…
13 to 21 = .619…
and 21 to 34, rounded to the third decimal place, is already .618!
And 144 is the only Fibonacci number that is the square of it’s own numerical place in the sequence (12). Eleven squared is 121 which is far greater than 89 (the eleventh number in the sequence), and thirteen squared gives 169, which is far lower than 233 (the thirteenth in the sequence). Yet the twelfth number is the perfect square of twelve; 144. Before this, all the squares are greater than the number itself, and past it, they become lesser. Thus the numbers are:
- 1 (1 squared is one)
- 1 (2 squared is 4)
- 2 (3 squared is 9)
- 3 16
- 5 25
- 8 36
- 13 49
- 21 64
- 34 81
- 55 100
- 89 121
- 144 144
- 233 169
- 377 196
The Crown Chakras 144,000 petals represent the highest FREQUENCY OF LIGHT, purified and balanced through the seven filtering chakras. It is pure light, in Kundalini Yoga. Keep this in mind…
144 x 9 = 1296 (half of a precessional cycle in years)
144 x 1296 = 186,624
Therefore, half of 144 multiplied by a full precessional cycle equals the same:
72 x 25,920 = 186,624
(As a side note, 25,920 x 186,624 = the mean orbital radius of Jupiter, roughly 483 million miles)
Also, 432 x 432 = 186,624
So what it THIS number???
The speed of light, in miles per second!
(In a vacuum. With 99.8 % accuracy.)
Divide 186,624 by 10,000 and you have Earth’s Orbital Speed in miles per second. Isn’t that handy? Earth moves around the sun at one ten-thousandth of the speed of light…
Divide 186,624 by 3600 and you have 51.84 – the extremely precise slope angle of the Great Pyramid. So did the Great Pyramid encode within it the speed of light in miles per second? Why, yes, in a sense, it did. This whole system of harmonics is based on light and vibration, and the slope is merely one more sign that they knew this math well. The 51.84 slope is required in order ‘square the circle’, or to give a height that, when multiplied by 2(Pi) gives the base perimeter. This ‘describes’ a dome, like the Northern Hemisphere of Earth. The Great Pyramid is the only pyramid in with this exact slope.
Now, remember that the Great Pyramid is situated just off of 30 degrees North Latitude. It actually rests at 29.9792458 degrees North. (Note, this is a decimal, not minutes and seconds.)
299,792,458 is the speed of light (in a vacuum) in meters per second!
In fairness, it needs only 6 or 7 digits to be a perfect match (lest we get carried away and start pinpointing specific chambers in the pyramid…). This is to say, the Great Pyramid shows us the speed of light in miles per second with it’s slope angle, and it shows the very same, in kilometers per hour with its latitude (or arc/angle from the Equator).
Allow these things to settle into your mind, that you may never look at history the same again.
Yet, do not think that we are through with the DIVINE NUMERALS of LIGHT! This is merely the beginning. In kilometers per hour, the speed of light is 1,080,000,000 or 108! Light travels one foot in one nanosecond. It travels one light year in a year (obviously). Both these measures of distance, scientists were wise enough to base on the travel speed of light. Light is the great constant of the Universe.
What of the great counterpart of light, which is sound? The sacred harmonics are certainly found in sonic vibrations as well. Having a background in music, I am well aware that standard tuning, or ‘concert pitch’ is set at 440 hertz. This means that, when tuning a piano (beginning with it’s ‘Middle C’), you are setting the note to a fixed pitch, perhaps a tuning fork that is locked into that pitch, and this pitch is set at 440 hertz. This chosen standard was introduced and enforced by the Rockefellers, though there are many who have disagreed with this choice.
There are many who argue that 440 hertz is a negative and discordant frequency, which should not serve as our national concert pitch. Essentially all the music we hear is tuned to 440. Every studio album and every concert tends to conform. The opponents of 440 (myself proudly included) unanimously ask for its replacement with 432 hertz. Though few may understand how much difference 8 hertz can make, many claim to enjoy the frequency more, and some claim it carries healing properties in its waves.
The waves are what we are measuring after all. Imagine we are tuning a violin. As we tighten the string, it vibrates at a higher frequency and correspondingly, our ears hear a higher pitch. The higher frequency, means waves passing through a given space more frequently, or faster. At 440 hertz, we are emmitting 440 waves per second and therefore, one hertz is equal to one wave per second. If we tune the string slightly lower in pitch, (becoming more loose) it vibrates slower and can drop down to 432 hertz, or 432 cycles/waves per second.
Simply put, 432 hertz works much better for our planet. Does anybody really understand why? Not really, but we’re definitely learning more and more about it every day and the discussion is spreading and expanding. Knowing the outside correlations of the numbers to ancient philosophy helps us understand all the more, but as the reader may be seeing, this is sort of the grand mystery of GOD; of light and of manifest existence…
It is being revealed, or should I say discovered, gradually. Thus the term Revelations, and also Apocalypse, which means, a great revealing. Is it a conspiracy to keep the entire world unhealthy and ‘out of tune’? Let’s put it this way: I don’t think it was accidental that, for example, both Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley died shortly after they started promoting the 432 tuning to their fellow musicians…
Yet, 432 is not the only ‘healing’ frequency. One can find endless videos and playlists online of 864 hertz, 417 hertz, 528 hertz, 396 hertz, 963 hertz and so on. So now perhaps we can understand Ed Leedskalnin’s singing and use of radio tuners at Coral Castle, and why the Tibetan drums and horns needed such specific proportions in order to resonate the stones into motion and why we hear legends of stones that floated through the air to the sound of trumpets or whistling, and why an opera singer can shatter a glass, and why the pyramids can be activated and utilized only through specific frequencies, and why the universe was created by the WORD – a spoken sound – a vibration, and the LIGHT – also a vibration. It is VIBRATION that tells the potential substance of the universe to become what it will. It is therefore, quite literally, our vibration that creates the world around us, including our own bodies. Our vibration determines our health.
Three Six Nine
“If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.”
- Nikola Tesla
There are yet greater mysteries to these numbers. For, they are all ruled over by 3, 6 and 9.
If half of 432 is 216 and half of that, 108, and half of that, 54 and half of that 27, then 27 would seem to be the root of it all, as the lowest whole integer of the doubling process. That is, it is not evenly divisible by two. Twenty-seven is the base of this system because it in turn, is based on THREE. It is three cubed (3 x 3 x 3 = 27, or 3 x 9 = 27). We will find that all our harmonic numbers are the results of the 3, its square (9) and its cube (27), multiplied by the ascending powers of two (2 doubling to 4, 8, 16…) A graph made by Robert Edward Grant demonstrates this plainly.
At this point, many headaches may dissipate at once for the reader who attempts to visualize how these mysterious things work. We see them all neat and orderly, arranged in perfect harmony. They tumble irrationally forth from the very first two divisions from unity – 2 and 3.
There, between the primal 3 and the extrapolated 27, is the master of them all, the 9! Like the nine rings given to men in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, the nine rule the world, yet are also overshadowed by a higher singularity – the one Ring of Sauron. The nine is the division of one into nine.
I noticed at a young age that all equal subdivisions of a circle reduce to nine, though I did not know these terms then. I came to realize that ‘reducing’ numbers is a core practice of Numerologists (occult mathematicians, or those who seek the hidden side of numbers; or, to mathematicians, what astrologers are to astronomers, or alchemists to chemists…).
For instance, 27 can be reduced to 9 as 2 + 7 = 9. It is a way of simplifying a long number into a single digit that is its archetype of sorts; it’s root or base.
What I had noticed was that the 360 degree circle, divided in half infinitely, would always produce arcs that reduced to 9. This I recognized, even at a young age, as the great key as to why the circle was divided such a way.
(360) 3 + 6 + 0 = 9
(180) 1+ 8 + 0 = 9
(90) 9 + 0 = 9
(45) 4 + 5 = 9
(22.5) 2 + 2 +5 = 9
(11.25) 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 =9
(5.625) 5 + 6 + 2 + 5 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9
On and it goes, yet always will it reduce to nine. So what about our harmonics? We can tell from the above chart that they are all divisible by 9, but what do they all reduce to?
18 = 9
36 = 9
72 = 9
144 = 9
288 = 18 = 9
108 = 9
216 = 9
432 = 9
864 = 9
1728 = 18 = 9
We may remember that in our multiplication tables, we may have been taught one of various tricks for the multiples of nine. All of nine’s multiples reduce to itself, which is quite unique. For instance, we may bend down one of our ten fingers, let’s say the 7th – for the example of 7 x 9, which equals 63, and we will find 6 fingers standing to the left and 3 to the right, of our lowered seventh finger.
NINE will connect our mathematics directly to geometry then, as it is the master number of the circle.
Blavatsky and Brahma
Helena Blavatsky cuts to the chase in the second volume of the Secret Doctrine:
“Therefore we are first told that the farthest date to which documentary record extends is now generally regarded by Anthropology as but “the earliest distinctly visible point of the pre-historic period.” (Encyclopaedia Britannica.) At the same time it is confessed that “beyond that period stretches back a vast indefinite series of prehistoric ages.” (Ibid.) It is with those specified “Ages” that we shall begin. They are “prehistoric” to the naked eye of matter only. To the spiritual eagle eye of the seer and the prophet of every race, Ariadne’s thread stretches beyond that “historic period” without break or flaw, surely and steadily, into the very night of time; and the hand which holds it is too mighty to drop it, or even let it break. Records exist, although they may be rejected as fanciful by the profane; though many of them are tacitly accepted by philosophers and men of great learning, and meet with an unvarying refusal only from the official and collective body of orthodox science.”
She claims that, of all the calendars of Ancient India, the “best and most complete of all” is called the
“Tirukkanda Panchanga. compiled, as we are told, from, and in full accordance with, secret fragments of Asuramaya’s data. As Asuramaya is said to have been the greatest astronomer, so he is whispered to have also been the most powerful “Sorcerer” of the “WHITE ISLAND, which had become BLACK with sin,” i.e., of the islands of Atlantis.”
In other words, this calendar was compiled from the astronomical records of the Highest Priest of all Atlantis, so perhaps it has some useful figures... Her data is as follows:
“14 “Manvantaras” plus the period of one Satya Yuga make
ONE DAY OF BRAHMA, or complete Manvantara and make …. 4,320,000,000 years.
Therefore a Maha-Yuga consists of ………………………………………………. 4,320,000 years.
The year 1887 is from the commencement of Kali-Yuga ………………………. 4,989 years.”
By this, we calculate that the Kali Yuga would have started in the year 3102 BC, which is quite close to the birth of the last Mayan Age – 3114 BC – occurring in the Age of Taurus. (Blavatsky uses 1887, as this was the year in which she was writing, reminding us again how far ahead of her own time she was…) Quite clearly, we again see the perfect 432 in the Manvantaras and Maha-Yugas. She then describes the greater harmonic of the Yuga Cycle, in which all figures are multiplied by 360, as we saw before. She continues with computations by Rao Bahadur P. Sreenivas Row, taken from the Theosophist of November, 1885.
“ Mortal years.
360 days of mortals make a year ……………………………………………………………….. 1
Krita Yuga contains …………………………………………………………………….. 1,728,000
Treta Yuga contains …………………………………………………………………….. 1,296,000
Dwapara Yuga contains ………………………………………………………………….. 864,000
Kali Yuga contains …………………………………………………………………………. 432,000
The total of the said four Yugas constitute a Maha Yuga ………………….. 4,320,000
Seventy-one of such Maha-Yugas form the period of the
reign of one Manu …………………………………………………………. 306,720,000
The reign of 14 Manus embraces the duration
of 994 Maha-Yugas, which is equal to ……………………………. 4,294,080,000
Add Sandhis, i.e., intervals between the reign of each Manu,
which amount to six Maha-Yugas, equal to …………………………………… 25,920,000
The total of these reigns and interregnums of 14 Manus, is 1,000
Maha-Yugas, which constitute a Kalpa, i.e., one day of Brahma ….. 4,320,000,000
As Brahma’s Night is of equal duration,
one Day and Night of Brahma would contain ……………………………. 8,640,000,000
360 of such days and nights make one year of Brahma make … 3,110,400,000,000
100 such years constitute the whole period of
Brahma’s age, i.e., Maha-Kalpa …………………………………….. 311,040,000,000,000
These are the exoteric figures accepted throughout India, and they dovetail pretty nearly with those of the Secret works. The latter, moreover, amplify them by a division into a number of esoteric cycles, never mentioned in Brahmanical popular writings — one of which, the division of the Yugas into racial cycles, is given elsewhere as an instance. The rest, in their details, have of course never been made public. They are, nevertheless, known to every “Twice-born” (Dwija, or Initiated) Brahmin, and the Puranas contain references to some of them in veiled terms, which no matter-of-fact Orientalist has yet endeavoured to make out, nor could he if he would.”
I don’t believe, at this point, much needs to be said regarding the above figures, but let’s recount… We have, in the Yuga Ages, our 1728, its half – 864 with its half, 432, and of course 12960, which is half the precessional cycle. Intervals between the reign of each Manu give an exact precessional cycle of 25920. Oddly, the year and life of Brahma give the year of the beginning of the Mayan Fifth World, 3114 BC, but with an extra zero (31104). This would mean nothing unless Year Zero truly was tied in to an exact point on the cycle, but it likely is.
She also mentions:
“From the beginning of cosmic evolution,* up to the Hindu year Tarana (or 1887) …
This is (to 99.8% accuracy) equal to the Ninevah Constant divided by 100,000 (or, with five zeros dropped… 1,959,552,000). Is it going too far to mention that the word NINE is right there in NINEvah? Probably… Anyway, only a few lines later, she writes:
”The number that elapsed since the “Vaivasvata Manvantara”* — or the human period — up to the year 1887, is just 18,618,728 years.”
18,618,728 divided by 100 gives Light Speed in miles per second with 99.8 % accuracy. (The familiar 186,624.)
If we add 133 years (to arrive at the year 2020 from 1887) we get 18,618,861. So the “human period” began roughly 18.6 million years ago, and the “cosmic evolution” began nearly two billion years ago. Her footnote on cosmic evolution relates that within the esoteric doctrine, this is understood to relate to our solar system, and not the whole universe.
As we approach the great riddle of the number SEVEN, let us remain within the works of Blavatsky. By now, one may surmise that she was in her day, not only the greatest source of ancient teachings for the Western World, but that she remains to this day, the ONLY source for a great deal of it. Yet self-admittedly, she was merely the source the of the source. She had spent a lifetime in search of the Masters of Wisdom, and after traveling the entire world, finally met with this school of the Ascended, her ‘Great White Brotherhood’ or the ‘Ascended Masters’.
It was was from a hierarchy of beings who had already perfected the human condition, that her information came – from a school of Buddhists and Brahmins who had literally tapped into the eternal – who could read directly from the Akashic Records, like Edgar Cayce. They could walk on water, walk through fire, teleport, fly through the air, disappear, heal ailments, manifest objects directly out of the aether and many other unthinkable feats. When we begin to realize that these ‘supernatural’ abilities are very real, yet highly protected secrets, then the various prophets and messiahs can be seen as those within a living, contiguous tradition that teaches access to these powers, only in their case, the hierarchies allowed them to disclose such news to the world, whether plainly spoken, or encrypted. Jesus, for example, was certainly such a Master. The Secret Doctrine, in particular, was largely written by Master Morya and Master Kuthumi.
These Masters or Mahatmas requested of her to write Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine. They requested that she form the Theosophical Society in New York. It was their plan to reveal this knowledge to humanity, in the years spanning 1875 -1900 no less. Blavatsky was their chosen vehicle, and as the patriarchy was ultimately giving way to a gender balanced system, it was no accident that this Messiah was female. It was a message that we were given directly by higher beings who understand our evolutionary path. It was communicated from the Divine LOGOS through the very same angels, powers, neters, or principles described by every religion, through the ascended beings who live in the world of these principles, and finally through Blavatsky’s pen. So forgive me if I ‘hang on a source’ for too long. My research library, through the course of writing this book, has grown to over 5,000 titles, yet Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine are the only two that are truly necessary. One source like her is worth all the books in the world.
Like Edgar Cayce, she provides so much information with such perfect continuity, that in studying her works, one cannot deny the authority of itself. Like the symbols of the Hermetic science, repeated over and over again with temple structure and art, the Gupta Vidya (Secret Doctrine) is self referential, and proves its point many times over to ensure that the message is not misconstrued. It is merely a matter of learning the language. The code is written throughout the entire Matrix – the mother.
According to Blavatsky, the earth (or the ‘planetary chain’) plays host to seven Root Races. Each one consecutively appears on earth and each is given its own extended age, before being replaced by the next. They often overlap with one another, as one is seeded and another fades out. Each of the Root Races is divided into seven ‘Sub Races’, and each Sub Race is furthermore divided into seven ‘Family Races’. (7 x 7 = 49 Sub Races, 49 x 7 = 343 Family Races)
With each passing race, humanity collectively learns and grows to develop the qualities required to move on the next race, or lesson. Within this framework, four races have already come and the Fifth is in development. The sixth and seventh are yet to come.
Our current period of development is devoted to the Fifth Sub Race of the Fifth Root Race. However, the majority of the current population descend from the Seventh Sub Race of the Fourth Root Race. Each of the Root Races is born from one of the Sub Races of the Root Race which precedes it. Even this entire scheme of Root Races itself, must occur seven times, of which we are in the ‘Fourth Round’.
The Fourth Round began with our First Root Race – the Polarian, named for its original region, the North Pole. The Second Root Race is known as the Hyperborean, as it resided in Hyperborea, or Northern Asia. The first two races are spoken of as not being fully material. The first, in particular, is not even ‘individualized’ per say; it is more of a collective consciousness preparing for it’s Aeons of Earthly experience. Even the second race is not yet fully corporeal. In Genesis, when Adam and Eve put on skins to cover their flesh, this means that their spirits were becoming encased in physical matter. In other words, this event leads to the second root race, which was physically incarnate, at least to a greater extent.
It is not until the Third Root Race, known as Lemurian, that humanity even has bones, yet at this stage, remained transgendered. Over the course of the Lemurian Age, humanity eventually became ‘double-sexed’ and ever since, has been split into two genders that require each other to procreate. The first three sub races reproduced by laying eggs, but the fourth began to reproduce as we do today. Though it is never so clearly stated exactly when these first few races began, we can be sure that the onset of the Third, was in the millions of years in the past. It would seem to correspond to the Australopithecenes or the Aborigines of Australia. It was centered in the Pacific, and was perhaps responsible for the statues of Easter Island.
According to the theosophists, this Lemurian Continent existed in the Indian Ocean including Australia and even into the South Pacific. Today, the only remaining land is Australia, New Guinea and Madagascar. Much of the land eventually sank and was destroyed by volcanoes. As the land was slowly engulfed by ocean, the Lemurians migrated to surrounding continents such as Africa, southern India and the East Indies.
It was in the Third Race that ‘death’ was first experienced, as it was the first time physical incarnation became truly possible. Yet, for this race, it was impossible to ‘build a soul’ or achieve an individualized vehicle that could reincarnate, until self awareness was bestowed on it. The Third Race began as an animalistic race, but by the end, was quite close to our modern form, though many of them may have been giants, greater than 25 feet tall.
The Secret Doctrine makes the bold claim that during this period, some of Lemurians, not knowing any better, mated with certain beasts and thus the apes were formed as an offspring of humanity, rather than the opposite. The existence of ape races, then apparently caused certain issues or setbacks within our evolution. Great beings came to earth to help assist our evolution and they bound themselves to us, in order to cultivate the progression towards higher states. This ‘mass-incarnation’ of highly advanced souls was seemingly postponed by the issue of the apes, which had arisen by unnatural means. It took place eventually, and these higher beings endowed us with our self awareness that eventually led to the next stage. By some accounts, the Lemurians were given too much ‘divine essence’. They had no developed language, as they were naturally psychic and could read each others thoughts. Perhaps we see an echo of this in the fact that Aborigines today still possess a sense of Geo-location not given to any other race of men. That is, they can naturally sense their position on the earth without use of a compass of GPS – much like the geese that instinctually fly north in the Summer, who obviously consult no compass.
The Fourth Root Race is called Atlantean, and after forming in Lemuria, eventually emigrated to a vast continent in the Atlantic. With the Atlanteans came civilization as we know it, with language both spoken and written, great cities and collective learning that had never been possible. Yet still, this race abused the sacred ‘sexual power’ and many of the high priests fell into the black magick, recycled from the Lemurian Age, which would become the basis of Tantra later. They lost the use of their Third Eye, as their passions led toward violations of nature, in which their ‘seed’ was used to create all sorts of beasts and anthropomorphs. Some legends tell that in battle, the Atlanteans had soldiers that were partly animal, and would devour their enemies on the battlefield.
This is the fine line between working for our evolution and working against it. It was the obsession with the sexual act and with sensuality itself, (in the purest of its meanings, the addiction to the senses) that allowed the third eye to eventual diminish within us, and all but go out like a light. The Pineal Gland has shrunk down to the size of a pea, when it should be a golf ball, or the size of our other two eyes in fact. It is an eye; this is not merely a metaphor. Therefore, individually and collectively, humanity decides whether it wants to use its ‘divine current’ for procreation or pleasure, or else renounce such fleeting experiences and devote themselves to the building of the higher body. The more we devote ourselves to the world of material, the further we become from ascending to our higher bodies. The sexual act is not evil, it is merely a means of continuity when used for procreation. To use this sacred treasure for personal gain, as in Black Magick, it then becomes a negative action, or one that moves further away from Nature’s goal. When we use this energy to open our chakras, it becomes an act that accelerates our evolution in, ultimately, the only direction it can really go. So either we are passively enjoying nature, fighting nature or else aiding nature.
In Atlantis, the righteous were saved and the unrighteous, destroyed. All the monstrous creatures they created came to be nothing more than the beasts of legend and myth. According to Master Kuthumi, it was in the years 9564 BC that the final cataclysm (of many) sank the continent beneath the waves. This is in broad agreement with every other source we have mentioned.
The catastrophe that destroyed Atlantis is always said to be due to their sinful practices, yet the holy ones are said to be saved. Yet, at the same time, the legends tell us that such catastrophes are cyclical and unavoidable, so which is it? Could it be both? Could the Universal Mind send out regular upgrades through space, that in turn are carried out and managed with such perfect order by its agent of formation that, like Santa Claus, it can differentiate down the individual, who is naughty or nice? This is a good question…
We have come back around to this very transition again, and are we better off than Atlantis was? Humanity has progressed in incredible ways, yet this Black Magick is still ruling the world, though this is not yet understood by the masses. Our very own ‘high priests’ (politicians, celebrities, financiers, etc) still commit sins equal to those of the Atlanteans. These sins are only now coming into full view and must be eliminated from our world, one way or another. We can root them out ourselves, but the Earth cannot neccesarily wait for this to happen. It is more likely that divine agents will cleanse the earth with their own natural method.
This may involve drastic Earth changes, or it could proceed relatively peacefully. The great catastrophes are said to alternate between fire and flood. In the ‘Spring Equinox’ (that approaching the Golden Age) of the great year, fire burns and in the ‘Autumnal Equinox’ (that approaching the Dark Age), floods wash through. So the Lemurian catastrophe was of fire and the Atlantean was by water, and ours will be of fire again. This ‘fire’ may appear any day now, and arguably, it already has come to us, yet we will know when ‘it happens’. This fire is, ultimately, the most important theme of this entire book. The Illusion and the Architect was created to help prepare the world for this grand event that will utterly transform the globe. Everything discussed thus far is a primer to this end, so we will soon enough describe this event in great detail.
In the Fourth Sub Race of the Fourth Root Race (Atlantean), of the FOURTH ROUND, we find the exact middle point of the WHOLE evolution of humanity. At this point, the ‘door into the human kingdom’ was closed, meaning no more animal souls could ascend into human form for the remainder of whole cycle (millions upon millions of years). Though we had all progressed upward through the animal kingdom ourselves, the number of human souls was fixed at this point. This means that you and I and everyone we know, has been a part of this ‘Human Kingdom’ since at least the mid point of the Atlantean Age. This was the lowest we sank into the material creation through the previous ages of involution. Afterwards began our evolution back into a more ascended form. Therefore, this was the point at which we were most involved with material creation.
Every root race is established by a single progenitor. The Atlantean variety was founded by Chankshusha Manu. The Atlantean Race (4th RR) was the ‘offspring’ from the Fourth Sub Race of Lemuria (3rd RR), just as Lemurians, (3rd RR) come from the 3rd sub race of the 2nd RR, and the 2nd RR from the 2nd SR of the 1st RR…
Atlanteans had begun with golden brown skin, but soon migrated to Asia and the Americas to become the red Native Americans, brown Malayans, and yellow Mongolians. The sub races of Atlantis included the Cro-magnons, or Tlavati, the Toltec of Mexico, the Turanians, the original Semites, Akkadians and Mongolians. Edgar Cayce was once asked what the Atlantean race looked like just before the great catastrophe. He said that they most resembled the Mohicans who are native to the Northern Hudson in New York, Massachusetts and Vermont. He described them as very beautiful. Yet
When the Atlantean cataclysm happened, many colonies were established by its ‘good’ priests. Egypt was one of these lands, as was Mexico, but the main colony was set up in the Himalayas. Here was born the Aryan Race, or our current Fifth Root Race. The term Aryan was simply a term describing the Early Indian peoples, meaning ‘noble’ or ‘worthy’. It was obviously not yet equated with its later negative distortions provided by the Nazis.
It is sad to note that many have placed blame on Blavatsky for the intolerance of Hitler and the Nazis. Hitler aimed to clear the world of the races he considered to be lesser than Aryan, as the Aryan Race (Fifth Root Race) was/is in the developmental spotlight. Blavatsky’s teachings, however, never once declared any race to be superior to any other – each was described as a stepping stone for the learning of new lessons. Certainly she never implied any cause for genocide. Most importantly, she describes one singular humanity, which transfers through all these races. The past races will fade out naturally, and a soul will leave the body of the last to reincarnate in the newer model. Our souls do not possess race; they take the genes that are available. She states:
“This is plain: the Humanity of the First Manvantara is that of the seventh and of all the intermediate ones. The mankind of the First Root-Race is the mankind of the second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. To the last it forms a cyclic and constant reincarnation of the Monads belonging to the Dhyan Chohans of our Planetary chain.”
Therefore, any hint of racism that Blavatsky may be accused of is dispelled in this one principle alone. She openly preached the opposite of intolerance and even in the manifesto of the Theosophical society is written “To form a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color.” Yes, she often utilized the Swastika, but this too, was a sacred symbol, not only of Hindu origin, but also found within countless spiritual traditions. It is found even within the Stanzas of Dzyan – the book which The Secret Doctrine is founded upon – potentially the oldest book in the world. The sacred Swastika is found in it’s first ‘pages’. Just as with the term Aryan, the Swastika had no negative ties until the 1930’s, long after Blavatsky’s time. The word VRIL might also be added to the list of sacred concepts utilized by her, and later profaned by the Nazis. Indeed, the Swastika itself is a symbol of VRIL.
Also known as the Indo-European or Indo-Caucasian Race, Aryans were white skinned, or ‘moon colored’. This race began with Vaivasvatu Manu. They emigrated from Atlantis to an island which lies in what is now the Gobi desert. Here they established the ‘City of the Bridge’. This is an intriguing name, considering that the sacred city of Shambhalla is rumored to lie beneath the sands of this very desert. In Meetings With Remarkable Men, G. I. Gurdjieff decribes an encounter with an ancient monastery hidden deep with the vast expanse of the Gobi. The name of this mystery school is Sarmounk and it is supposed to have existed in that very location since the earliest times. In this school, he finds a symbol held sacred by them, which he would later amend slightly into the Enneagram – a circle, equally subdivided into nine parts along its circumference by a very curious geometric shape inside. This is another mystery that must wait it’s turn, but will be addressed.
Some Aryan immigrants broke off from the main tribe and settled in what was then the lush and fertile Sahara, around 80,000 years ago. Here they founded the ‘City of the Sun’ – possibly the first version of Egypt.
Those who live in the time of the Aryan root race generally belong to this race, but some Atlanteans and Lemurian-Atlantean hybrids still exist. The subraces of the Aryans include (in chronological order) the Hindu who migrated to India around 60,000 BC, the Arabian, who settled Arabia in 40,000 BC, The Persian who arrived in Persia around 30,000 BC, The Celts left for Western Europe in 20,000 BC and the Teutonic who colonized Germany also around 20,000 BC.
The Sixth Sub Race of the Fifth Root Race, as explained by Blavatsky, will begin its evolution in the United States in our current time, the early 21st century. This race is said to be evolving in California as well as in Australia out of the Teutonic race. It will possess certain psychic abilities and extra senses due to its developed pituitary gland. In this way the new race, called the Australo-American, will bring intuitive wisdom to the world, blending all that was best in the past races, and just in time for the enlightening Age of Aquarius!
In the 28th century, this sub race will give rise to the Sixth Root Race. In several million years from now, the Seventh Root Race will be born on a continent that will arise in the Pacific Ocean. The story of humanity then continues in like manner, though after this Seventh, our development on earth may have reached an end and our story may continue in other places or realms.
So the Sixth and Seventh Root Races are to be given their respective ages in the future, and by the time the seventh ends, humanity will have evolved back out of ‘the density’ and back into it’s higher nature. This, in a nutshell, is the theory of the Root Races she relayed from the ancient sources. Few have added much of worth to the subject since her original writings, with Rudolph Steiner’s Cosmic Memory being one notable exception. Yet Blavatsky’s SEVEN expresses far more than just the races of the Earth.
She describes seven basic divisions of the universe – the SEVEN RAYS. Just as pure white light may be divided by a prism or raindrop into the seven colors of the rainbow, so does the Supreme Godhead filter down into our manifest universe through seven completely distinct ‘colors’ or rays of the Solar LOGOS.
Each of these seven archetypes has, at any given time on Earth, an incarnate representative. Therefore there will always be at least seven living masters on Earth, one for each. These seven rulers of the Seven Rays are called the Dhyan-Chohans.
“The seven sublime lords [i.e. as referred to in the Stanzas from the Secret Book of Dzyan] are the Seven Creative Spirits, the Dhyan-Chohans, who correspond to the Hebrew Elohim. It is the same hierarchy of Archangels to which St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and others belong, in the Christian theogony. Only while St. Michael, for instance, is allowed in dogmatic Latin theology to watch over all the promontories and gulfs, in the Esoteric System, the Dhyanis watch successively over one of the Rounds and the great Root-races of our planetary chain.”
(H. P. Blavatsky, “The Secret Doctrine” Vol. 1, p. 42)
So each of the Seven Rulers, in sequence, rule over an entire Round of the whole Cycle. Each also rules over their own respective root and sub races. In other words, the three is always the Third Ray or the Yellow Ray, and the Seventh will always be the Violet Ray. The color violet will represent the 7th Ray, the 7th Dhyan Chohan or Master (St. Germaine in this case, and his Violet Ray), the 7th Age, 7th race, 7th day of the week, the 7th note in a musical scale (that which immediately precedes the resolution of the octave), the 7th sphere on the tree of life, the 7th planet, the 7th Seal and thus of course, the 7th Chakra – the violet end of the heroes journey through the rainbow that leads back to the original pure white light. Thus violet is the color of wisdom, and of those who have attained the greatest distillation of the light within themselves. Violet is the healing culmination of all the lower frequencies and is the most pure of them all.
So throughout this grand process, we are given a well rounded spectrum of experience. Through the rounds, root races, sub races and family races, we experience the orange that is within the green that is within yellow that is within green. We experience the purple that is within the red that is within indigo, within green, etc.
Our Earth is also shifting through this process and activating her own seven chakras. In this Fourth Round, her Heart Chakra is turning on, thus humanity is learning of the heart’s true intelligence and power and we are practicing compassion. By the time Earth’s chakras are all alight, we shall all be enlightened!
We must all pass through these general colors and experiences, at least collectively, yet free will is never challenged by destiny. It is our actions and thoughts that feed this process, and determine what comes out of it. We shall reap what we sow…
“In the “Great Journey,” causes sown each hour bear each its harvest of effects, for rigid Justice rules the World. With mighty sweep of never erring action, it brings to mortals lives of weal or woe, the karmic progeny of all our former thoughts and deeds. Take then as much as merit hath in store for thee, O thou of patient heart. Be of good cheer and rest content with fate. Such is thy Karma, the Karma of the cycle of thy births, the destiny of those who, in their pain and sorrow, are born along with thee, rejoice and weep from life to life, chained to thy previous actions. Act thou for them “to-day,” and they will act for thee “to-morrow”. ‘Tis from the bud of Renunciation of the Self, that springeth the sweet fruit of final Liberation.”
Wisdom of the Ancients
These many cycles, ages, epochs and yugas all describe the progress of life on earth. They seek to grasp the mechanism that creates from a single seed, the finished product of a perfected organism. This procession begins with an ethereal conscious condition, wraps itself within the coverings of material, and slowly develops in order to eventually be released from this encasement and develop further within the higher realms which are less dense.
Though every culture came up with different names, systems and beliefs regarding the causes of this great clock that counts the developmental hours, it is safe to say that all were aware, to some degree, of the importance of this machinery. All the ancient peoples went to great lengths to try to measure the cycles and understand them. In many cases, they came to the realization that cosmic influences were regulating these patterns – a concept that agrees with our modern structure more and more everyday. As we realize that catastrophes have shaped our evolution and guided the development of our condition, we become more inclined to take seriously the cosmic models that have reached us from great antiquity.
While the orthodox fields of study within science and history cling tightly to handfuls of ‘facts’ and hold that nothing exists which is not physically observable by them, the more intuitive minds of the modern world have stepped up to answer such questions for themselves. It is now becoming quite clear that the stubborn curators of our past are entirely wrong in their assumptions about the human timeline and who we really are as a species. Their blind and pompous attitudes have convinced many that we simply exploded out of singular point of infinite density that sent all matter and time spinning outward until it settled down long enough for life to generate upon it and evolve to the human form, which remained a race of ignorant barbarians until only 5,000 years ago when suddenly, civilization happened. If I can explain the cosmology of Western Science in a single sentence, then it is not enough of an explanation. There is really nothing about our history that is as boring and dull as the modern approach considers it to be.
So far off are they, the orthodox acedemics, that even their most fundamental principles are entirely false. They tell of a people who slowly developed for millions of years, yet only started to understand and control their environment within the past ten thousand. They speak of evolution that is entirely powered by chance. They deny the existence of a soul, and believe that death is an end. They have drawn for us a picture of reality that is limited to our material universe and they say that this is all we have.
But what of the flaws within these descriptions? What of the vastly stylized and highly detailed cosmologies of our ancestors? What of the fact that ancient monuments align to distant stars? How did the ancients know the distances to these stars or the size and shape of the earth? How could maps be drawn of regions that are now uninhabitable under massive ice sheets? How could construction technology, which surpasses our own, have been shared with cultures across the globe in ancient times? How could myths describe astrolonomical knowledge that parallels our own, and how could these myths have come to be spread throughout the globe in a similar way?
The truth is that our past is far more intriguing and mysterious than our boxed-in scientists would have us believe. The truth is, these ‘men of science’ explain away these mysteries as coincidences, or else ignore them. They deny us our collective inheritance – the sacred wisdom that we ourselves once possessed, and that we ourselves encoded into brilliant time capsules to send to ourselves.We once knew the real story of our place in the universe.
Unlike the ‘theory of progress’ that objective science describes, we have seen that the highest intellectual plateau the human mind has reached in our recent history occurred before a great period of destruction around 10,500 BC. Therefore, it follows that if we can compile the wisdom from the earliest of our civilizations, we can get a good idea of what was most important to this enlightened predecessor of our modern race.
Perhaps the most obvious field they studied was that of the stars and the celestial bodies. This may be natural, as that which one cannot touch and feel in their hand is reasonably going to be hard to understand. For this reason, astronomy has been a curious subject for man since the earliest times. Yet we know now that the ancients were not so confused about the stars as we have presently assumed. Rather they had a knowledge of the cosmos that was equivalent to, or better, than our own. They knew the distances to certain stars, and differentiated them from the wandering planets. They observed the barely discernible motion of precession and knew the length of this cycle in great detail. They held keys to the movements of planetary bodies within our own solar system. They even built replicas of the brightest stars of the Milky Way, mapping out constellations on the ground. This must have been done for a specific purpose, otherwise they would not have gone to such trouble to accomplish it.
The earth as well, was studied intensively. The mean diameter and circumference was exemplified in structures on opposite sides of the world. The four directions were so perfectly understood that structures weighing millions of tons were oriented with greater precision than is the Royal Observatory of London, which marks the modern prime meridian. The geomantic points of the earth grid were built up with the intention of accessing the vital energy of our planet at the sites where it naturally flowed forth from the ground.
Their mathematics encompassed principles that were only later rediscovered by Pythagoras and Plato, such as Pi, Phi and the ‘Pythagorean’ theorem. Their understanding of harmony and proportion allowed for the construction of huge halls that were capable of lifting the initiate into higher realities and helping to advance his consciousness. The Temple of Luxor demonstrates the vast knowledge of the human body and its ideal form. This wisdom is also seen in the fields of medicine and health.
The ancients were able to move stones that are today, immovable. They were able to remove them from the bedrock, shape them as though they were butter, lift them high in the air and set them seamlessly without mortar. They built many of the largest structures in world, even today, from some of the hardest materials known to man.
Perhaps the greatest legacy they left us was within a field that, without a doubt, they understood far greater than we – the human condition. All the cultures that have been discussed so far in this book have revealed much about their knowledge of the soul. Often times the pyramids and other sacred sites were built as instruments to guide the soul as it left the mortal realm. They were like obstacle courses for the deceased to traverse in order to guide their ascension to a specific end, usually to direct them towards a region of the cosmos. Perhaps, even, one of the functions of the pyramids was to send human souls to distant galaxies and to import souls from those areas.
Regardless, the ancient Egyptians, Early Indians, Meso-Americans and all other of these ancient wisdom traditions all spoke of the nature of the soul. They told us that the immaterial precedes the material – that man, the human, is only one aspect of man the being. They describe the threefold nature of the universe, the earth and the human. This holy trinity divides the microcosm as well as the macrocosm into the physical, mental and spiritual qualities that make up the whole. They described the pure Atman, the portion of GOD that exists within each of us, as the operator of the machine that is the body and intellect.
They unanimously agree that our mortal end is only a transition of state for the soul. The soul, they believe, is immortal and will continue to pass from organism to organism until its training and spiritual development have prepared it for ascension to higher worlds. At this point, it sheds its body and instead of reincarnating, it remains in the form of the subtle body, or the ‘rainbow body’. In time, it will progress further still by shedding this body. This process continues until the purified micro-soul is once again reabsorbed into the macro-soul.
Of all the mysteries of nature, it is that of the soul that we will find arising within the controversial threads of wisdom that extend down to our present day. All other mysteries surround this centerpiece of curiosity. We will find that after the descent of consciousness from Egypt, the human world became a battleground for the truth, regarding the soul and mankind’s encasement of flesh.
We must remember that our ancestors, well aware of the great cycles of time, knew that their illuminated cultures would eventually fall into shadows. They were aware that the human race would fall deep into an ignorant state of confused hallucination. They spoke of how man’s intuitive, psychic, and spiritual nature would disappear beneath the clouded landscapes of his physical condition. They warned that in the future, men would come to dominate one another rather than live in peace and collectively share their resources, energy, wealth and wisdom. They knew that the gods would soon be neglected and the great Neters that ruled the universe would disappear from all human thought and reverence.
This, they told us and this has come to be. In Part Two, we will follow this trail of tears. We will see the wisdom that we are now familiar with as it traverses the centuries, here buried, there uplifted; now banned and burnt, then discovered and released. It is the bloody story of deception and preservation, and it is without a doubt, the saddest, yet at the same time, the most beautiful and uplifting story one could imagine.
Perhaps Thoth, or Hermes Trismegistus if you prefer, said it best in the Corpus Hermeticum, which was briefly quoted earlier.
“Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an image of heaven, or, to speak more exactly, in Egypt all the operations of the powers which rule and work in heaven have been transferred to earth below?
Nay, it should rather be said that the whole Kosmos dwells in this our land as in its sanctuary. And yet, since it is fitting that wise men should have knowledge of all events before they come to pass, you must not be left in ignorance of this: there will come a time when it will be seen that in vain have the Egyptians honoured the deity with heartfelt piety and assiduous service; and all our holy worship will be found bootless and ineffectual. For the gods will return from earth to heaven.
Egypt will be forsaken, and the land which was once the home of religion will be left desolate, bereft of the presence of its deities.
This land and region will be filled with foreigners; not only will men neglect the service of the gods, but… Egypt will be occupied by Scythians or Indians or by some such race from the barbarian countries thereabout. In that day will our most holy land, this land of shrines and temples, be filled with funerals and corpses. To thee, most holy Nile, I cry, to thee I foretell that which shall be; swollen with torrents of blood, thou wilt rise to the level of thy banks, and thy sacred waves will be not only stained, but utterly fouled with gore.
Do you weep at this, Asclepius? There is worse to come; Egypt herself will have yet more to suffer; she will fall into a far more piteous plight, and will be infected with yet more, grievous plagues; and this land, which once was holy, a land which loved the gods, and wherein alone, in reward for her devotion, the gods deigned to sojourn upon earth, a land which was the teacher of mankind in holiness and piety, this land will go beyond all in cruel deeds. The dead will far outnumber the living, and the survivors will be known for Egyptians by their tongue alone, but in their actions they will seem to be men of another race.
O Egypt, Egypt, of thy religion nothing will remain but an empty tale, which thine own children in time to come will not believe; nothing will be left but graven words, and only the stones will tell of thy piety. And in that day men will be weary of life, and they will cease to think the universe worthy of reverent wonder and of worship. And so religion, the greatest of all blessings, for there is nothing, nor has been, nor ever shall be, that can be deemed a greater boon, will be threatened with destruction; men will think it a burden, and will come to scorn it. They will no longer love this world around us, this incomparable work of God, this glorious structure which he has built, this sum of good made up of things of many diverse forms, this instrument whereby the will of God operates in that which he has made, ungrudgingly favouring man’s welfare, this combination and accumulation of all the manifold things that can call forth the veneration, praise, and love of the beholder.
Darkness will be preferred to light, and death will be thought more profitable than life; no one will raise his eyes to heaven; the pious will be deemed insane, and the impious wise; the madman will be thought a brave man, and the wicked will be esteemed as good. As to the soul, and the belief that it is immortal by nature, or may hope to attain to immortality, as I have taught you, all this they will mock at, and will even persuade themselves that it is false. No word of reverence or piety, no utterance worthy of heaven and of the gods of heaven, will be heard or believed.
And so the gods will depart from mankind, a grievous thing, and only evil angels will remain, who will mingle with men, and drive the poor wretches by main force into all manner of reckless crime, into wars, and robberies, and frauds, and all things hostile to the nature of the soul. Then will the earth no longer stand unshaken, and the sea will bear no ships; heaven will not support the stars in their orbits, nor will the stars pursue their constant course in heaven; all voices of the gods will of necessity be silenced and dumb; the fruits of the earth will rot; the soil will turn barren, and the very air will sicken in sullen stagnation. After this manner will old age come upon the world. Religion will be no more; all things will be disordered and awry; all good will disappear.
But when all this has befallen, Asclepius, then the Master and Father, God, the first before all, the maker of that god who first came into being, will look on that which has come to pass, and will stay the disorder by the counterworking of his will, which is the good. He will call back to the right path those who have gone astray; he will cleanse the world from evil, now washing it away with water-floods, now burning it out with fiercest fire, or again expelling it by war and pestilence. And thus he will bring back his world to its former aspect, so that the Kosmos will once more be deemed worthy of worship and wondering reverence, and God, the maker and restorer of the mighty fabric, will be adored by the men of that day with unceasing hymns of praise and blessing.
Such is the new birth of the Kosmos; it is a making again of all things good, a holy and awe-striking restoration of all nature; and it is wrought in the process of time by the eternal will of God. For God’s will has no beginning; it is ever the same, and as it now is, even so it has ever been, without beginning. For it is the very being of God to purpose good.”
