Standing Waves form Platonic Solids

"In 3D standing waves, a structure, with all characteristics of a platonic solid, is formed for each standing wave mode. Within an atom, which is the building block of matter, the platonic solid is not formed by salt or known particles, but by electromagnetic waves in vacuum.

Both the students of Buckminster Fuller and his protege Dr. Hans Jenny devised clever experiments that showed how the Platonic Solids would form within a… Continue

Hans Kayser & Pythagorean Harmonics

"If there were nothing else in the world but the twelve well-tempered tones, we would still have to believe in a wise creator who had built the world on a great plan. And if there is something that lets us at least suspect this plan, it is the melody of these twelve tones." -- J.M. Hauer

The term "harmony of the spheres" comes from Plato, who as we know was influenced by the Pythagoreans, and who applies it in the great final narrative of his Republic. There he describes, in a… Continue

William Blake

Of the Gates

My Eternal Man set in Repose

The Female from his darkness rose

And She found me beneath a Tree

A Mandrake & in her Veil hid me

Serpent Reasonings us entice

Of Good & Evil: Virtue and Vice

Struggling thro Earth's Melancholy

Blind in Fire with shield & spear

Eleusinian Mysteries - Part II

"Beautiful indeed is the mystery given us by the blessed gods:

death is for mortals no longer an evil, but a blessing."

Inscription found at Eleusis

"Blessed is he who has seen these things

before he goes beneath the earth;

for he understands the end of mortal life,

and the beginning (of a new life) given of God."

Pindar Fragment 102

which your Athens has… Continue

The Initiation of Hermes

My senses were suspended in mystic sleep-

not a weary, full-fed drowsiness,

but an alert and conscious emptiness.

Released from my body,

I flew with my thoughts,

and while I soared, it seemed to me,

a vast and boundless Being called my name:

"Hermes, what are you looking for?"

"Who are you?" I asked.

"I am the Way-Guide, the Supreme Mind,

the thoughts of Atum the One-God.

I am…

The Eleusinian Mysteries

Be there any so shrouded in mystery as the rites at Eleusis? It is only this...sincere and profound reverence for the same that has sealed the lips of the Wise Ones. Silence is the guarding of the tongue that the sacred mysteries be not profaned:

"But of what he is doing a man might be ignorant, as for instance people say, 'It slipped out of their mouths as they were speaking,' or 'They did not know it was a secret,' as Aeschylus said of the… Continue

Rotation and Order of the Elements

The cross of the elements is a tetrapole of spiritual essences, both electric and magnetic. The elements should never be thought of as merely material substances. Understanding of the elements is dependent on the clear understanding of the powers associated with each element. The powers are hot, cold, wet, and dry. In each one of the elements, one of the powers will be dominant. Any one of the elements may be transmuted into another through the action of the powers upon it. We see that + is… Continue
