I am aware of the points of contact of the body with something else; I am aware if there is a tension in a muscle; I am aware if I feel pain somewhere; I am aware of the heart beating or of the breathing. But all these are like dots. If I say that I am aware of the shape of the body, I am putting a line across all these dots and saying that is the shape. But it is not me. It is an assumption, an image.
Science is the wisdom tradition par excellence of our modern age. Quantum physics can be likened to a genuine spiritual path in that its study becomes a “royal road” beyond both physics and the physical dimension into the realm of metaphysics.
The primordial point is the world seed, the supreme formative and paternal potency, which is sown in the primordial womb. What constitutes the womb of the ‘supernal mother'? Geometry provides the answer as we shall see.
Reality Sandwich asked two of our leading occult scholars, Richard Smoley and Mitch Horowitz, to share their observations about the current state of mysticism in America, and where they see the field heading in the future.
FreeMasonry, Kabbalah, Nuclear Physics, Blackholes, Space Time and the Mustard seed of our reality deftly analyzed and synthesized for your consideration. "The practice of Sacred Geometry opens to the mind’s eye an analog of alternate worlds, higher dimensions representing the ultimate creative process and an unfolding evolution from Unity to multiplicity, and it demonstrates the fact that this unfolding on a cosmic scale is governed by the laws and relations of geometry." -Randall Carlson The Meaning of Sacred Geometry part 2. What's The Point? Read part 1 of the Meaning of Sacred Geometry here, “Ante omnia Punctum exstitit…” “Before all things were, there was a Point.” Anonymous, 18th century ‘Le Mystere de la Croix’ Sacred Geometry, to be fully appreciated and experienced, must be undertaken as a contemplative, or meditative exercise.  From the initial act of putting pencil or compass point to paper each act of geometry is charged with meaning.  The process of producing the forms, patterns and symbols of Sacred Geometry should be undertaken as a ritual act, where each line, curve, shape, gesture or operation takes on a significance far beyond the mere act itself, and reveals fundamental processes of creativity on a vast scale and range of phenomenon, from the geometry of atomic and molecular organization, through the forms and patterns of biological systems, to the scale of the cosmos itself and the very structure of Space and Time.  Indeed, the emergence of the Universe from the unknowable and unfathomable void, before the very existence of Time and Space, was an act of Geometry.  It is nothing less than this ultimate act of Creation which is replicated through the placing of pencil upon paper and from this point the drawing of a line or arc.  From these simple operations, the Geometrician soon learns to generate an infinite variety of form and pattern, and is, thereby, following in the footsteps of Nature herself, such being the indispensable requirement for success on the Hermetic path. To ancient masters and teachers geometry was seen as the definitive Holy Science from which emerged all other sciences.  Masonic author Carl Lundy affirms this status when he says: “All science rests upon mathematics, and mathematics is first and last, geometry… Geometry is the ultimate fact we have won out of a puzzling universe.”   The presumed requirement on the part of Plato, the acknowledged greatest Metaphysician of the Hellenic world, that anyone seeking admission to his academy must be conversant with the principles of Geometry, affirms the importance of this form of mental training to anyone desiring to tread the path to Metaphysical Knowledge.
I have long been impatient with “sustainability,” as if that were an end in itself. Isn’t it more important to think about what we want to sustain, and therefore what we want to create?
Practicing xenolinguist Diana Slattery writes about Simon Powell’s new book,"The Psilocybin Solution, The Role of Sacred Mushrooms in the Quest for Meaning," that concerns the ability of the psilocybin experience to deliver high-speed downloads; information transmission as communication with the Other; and especially, information delivered as a visual language of intense concentration.
