Equivalent Structures and Energies of a Higher Order
In this and the following lessons I am going to introduce you to mappings of the universe that help you establish useful equivalent structures for any magical work that you perform. These mappings relate to actual structures in our universe. When we use the word universe we mean much more than what the academic physicist think the universe is. We mean something that reaches beyond the universe of time-space. The universe that we talk about includes realm of action of life energies (hyper spaces), the realms that represent specific actions, or trends, and the realms of creative energies. In brief, this universe connects that which is "material" in the meaning of classical physics and that which is "magical." The models that we establish of these realms are very flexible. The fact that we can succeed with establishing a near comprehensive model of these realms for our purposes does not mean that there would not be other ways to establish a workable model. In fact, we have available an infinite number of other ways to model the same reality, or universe.
In the previous lessons I have referred to energies of a higher order (HOE's) several times. When I say HOE, I mean with it any action or trend that operates beyond the realms of electromagnetic energy and life energy. In our practical work with many models that describe these energies we found that presently the astrological model is one of the most useful mappings of these energies. This is so because the astrological model reflects a cosmic structure after which life on this planet is fashioned.
When working with HOE's, it is also good that you come to some understanding of the zero point energy. This is the realm of what some metaphysicist call "chaos." The zero is not a nothing but it is a balance of forces that results in zero. If you "disturb" that balance then you "create" something. The interpretation of several phenomena makes this mapping of chaos a very useful one.
Energies of a higher order (HOE's) have specific characteristics that pertain to what metaphysicist call "higher planes." We can see and measure their effects. Many of these energies have a characteristic to personify. We this we mean that these energies can appear to us as persons. This characteristic has to do with our own structure. Personification of HOE's, therefore, has a subjective value that encompasses all of mankind. Because of this characteristic to personify, magicians of old times spoke of spirits, gods, and the like when referring to HOE's. This animistic approach seems to be a basic characteristic of the working of the human brain that can be an advantage at least in stages of low technological achievement. In other words, it works well for people with rather primitive "metaphysics" that is at the basis of them understanding their world. This approach has many other advantages of which you may become aware as you are working with it. Above all you can create mythological systems that talk about interaction of gods, adventures of god-like heroes and the like in order to speak of psychological processes and other things that are abstract. The mapping that follows is in close leaning to the ancient gods of the zodiac and to the classical "four elements." It is a description, or mapping, of the higher planes that has proven to be very useful. I suggest that you explore the realms that I am going to describe and that you develop your practices in using these energies. A good way to explore these energies is to astrally travel in their realms. You find instructions of how to do that in my "Course of Cosmic Consciousness".
The Four Elements and the Four Planes
The four elements together with the four planes are an excellent framework within which we can order the vast amount of phenomena in the magical universe. This framework allows us to access any type of HOE we want to access. The model that we are about to describe is useful and comprehensive. But again I want to point out that we can make an infinite amount of other models that are equally valid.
Before I am going to describe the four planes I give you a brief description of the four elements. As you know, the metaphysical elements have little to do with the chemical elements. These elements viewed as basic qualities rather than basic substances, the latter being the characteristic of the chemical elements. The basic qualities of the metaphysical elements relate to our sensory experience and they are a projection of this sensory experience into the realms of finer density. Once we experience these realms of finer density, we are aware that the concepts of elements are generalizations that are convenient for our work.
The four sensory experiences that are at the root of the concept of the four elements are: hot and cold, dry and humid. The pair, hot and cold, we refer to as positive and negative. Dry and Humid we refer to as electric and magnetic. It is very important that you learn the following table:
Fire and Water are the two primary elements, opposite polarities, so to say. Air and Earth are considered to be secondary, or mixtures of the first two. This is a manner of viewing it.
Some researchers see air as an interaction between the two basic principles of fire and water. They consider earth to be the synthesis of the three. The originally pagan symbolism of Divine trinities "above" the worlds of manifestation somewhat reflects this view. You find this symbolism in many pagan religions as well as in the Christian religion which is in principle a paganized Jewish religion. The introduction of this trinity instead of one God to the mainstream Christian religion (obviously they "adjusted" to the then more popular pagan religions) was in the main the result of pragmatic politics of the Roman emperor Constantinus.
Electric and Magnetic relate to the phenomena of electromagnetic energy and life energy. The fire element is electric-positive. On the material plane it is energy, or light, in its conventional meaning. The earth element is electric-negative. It is structured light, or "frozen light" as some researchers say. Modern physics somewhat supports this theory.
The air element is magnetic-positive. On the material plane it is active life energy, or free life energy. The water element is magnetic-negative, or structured life.
If we relate the four elements to the material plane, we can easily order the four elements. Earth and Water belong to the dense material plane while air and fire are part of the etheric plane. The labels "positive" and "negative" are references to density. The elemental references as being "fire, air," etc., are pictures to make us understand easier the basic qualities. The references to electromagnetism and life energy, dense (structured) and volatile (etheric, non-structured) conform more with the realities of modern physics and magic of the future than would do the partition into five elements that includes the "akasha element" in leaning on Hindoo philosophy. The four elements are a good representation of the physical realities of light energy (electromagnetic energy) and life energy.
Let's repeat here:
Fire - volatile light - etheric electromagnetism - hot and dry - positive electric
Water - condensed life energy - structured orgone (prana, chi) - cold and humid - negative magnetic
Air - volatile life energy - etheric orgone (prana, chi) - hot and humid - positive magnetic
Earth - dense ("frozen") light - structured electromagnetism - cold and dry - negative electric
The four elements supply us with an excellent model for the planes of existence and in correlation with it planes of experience within ourselves. The earth element refers to that which is conscious, or the material planes. The water element refers to the human emotions and to the astral plane. The air element refers to the human mind and the mental plane, while the fire element refers to the human will and the causal plane.
Magicians see some "entities" or energies of a higher order that correlate to the four elements. These traditional elementals are the salamanders for the fire element, the sylphs are spirits of the air element, the undines are spirits of the water element, and the gnomes are spirits of the earth element.
In a technological sense we may view spirits as energies of a higher order that are made to manifest (personify) in the etheric plane.
The planes of existence correlate with the elements. You must familiarize yourself well with this model in order to work toward consciousness of One with the techniques that I am showing you in the course of cosmic consciousness. You may perceive these planes as "higher" planes or as "inner" planes. As you progress with your work you will get to understand that this distinction between "higher" and "inner" has only limited relevance. Oneness with the Divine will ultimately elevate you into realms where a distinction between "inner" and "higher" become meaningless.
The Material Plane
The material plane is the plane where you find all that is tangible and where you find these things that you become conscious of. Each one of the higher planes has a material component which is the realm where it can become becomes conscious to you.
For convenience we subdivide the material plane into two levels: the etheric plane and the dense material plane. The etheric plane is the plane that contains free chi and free light energy. The dense material plane is the realm that is structured.
Although we make such a distinction, there is no sharp boarder between the two planes, but a continuous transition. Free chi and free light are only at the threshold of chaos. The more manifest these energies become the denser are their appearances. Also, there is nothing I know of that is purely chi and there is nothing that is purely light, there is nothing that is totally dense and there is nothing that is totally unstructured. The labels that we use are describing extremes that are beyond our existence. It is the mixture of the elements that make things existing while the pure element by itself cannot have any existence. The material plane is far more complex than the space-time continuum that modern physics attempts to describe. Life energy does not follow the laws of the three dimensional universe that we measure, but it has its own type of "space." The main characteristic of that space is structural linkage.
The Astral Plane
The astral plane contains matrices of that which is tangible, or material. It is the world of formation. The energies of the astral plane are of a more subtle nature than the energies of the etheric and material planes. It is a world of desire, of emotions. A spirit that has the desire to manifest dwells in the astral. For its manifestation a material focus is necessary. A human being can direct a spirit to gain an etheric form. If a magician does that consciously we call it an evocation of the spirit. I have evoked spirits and furnished them with sufficient life energy (with the Welz Chi Generator that I invented) so that they could show their form on Polaroid photos.
We can also project part of our energy field into the astral world and travel there. This way we can gain contact with entities without them needing to materialize in an evocative process. In this course you will learn to explore the elemental realms astrally.
The Mental Plane
The mental plane contains thoughts and mental matrices. These energies are still more subtle than the astral energies. They relate to the human mind. Another name for the mental planes is world of creation. You may view the mental plane as a universe of thought for which our brain is the perceiving sensory organ.
The Causal Plane
This plane is the realm of the will, the world of emanation. It contains the spark that brings things into manifestation by causing them to take the characteristics of each plane that they pass through: first a mental pattern, then an astral body of desire, and eventually an etheric or dense material shape.
To be conscious of Oneness you need to consciously align all four elements and to be consciously aware of all planes. You bring your cosmic consciousness in manifestation in the same way as other ideas finally manifest.
How the Planes Relate to Us
An Astrological Map of the Universe
That there is a correlation between astrological positions and trends on our planet has been established long ago. From empirical observations of ancient magicians gradually a science evolved that correlates the destiny and general trends of every individual on this planet with the position of the stars at this individual's birth. More specific trends that are valid for an individual can be found in an analysis of the movements of the planets and stars after its birth. The position of the heavenly bodies in relation to a location compares well to the setting of a radionics device.
A closer analysis of the planets, stars, etc., in the sky and their movements yields some very interesting results: they follow interesting numerical correlations. Bode's law expresses these correlations.
Although astrology has served mankind well, most astrologers were at a loss when they tried to explain why the whole thing worked. The old assumption that the heavenly bodies were gods was somewhat valid. It even helped develop magical systems that had the goal of establishing trends other than what the stars promised by placating these gods. This animistic approach came closer to the reality of astrological energies being HOE's that the ludicrous astrological theories of our days. The lack of true scientific training of most modern day astrologers finds its expression in the theories that they formulate. While the animistic approach of the astrologers of ancient times gave at least rise to a technology of generating trends, the pop-scientific approach of their modern day counterparts brings nothing of that kind. Astrology has totally degenerated into a science that just interprets trends. Modern astrologers are nothing but a bunch of counselors who have the advantage of being capable of predicting future trends.
Perhaps the best explanation of why astrology works is the structural approach. With this we mean that the planetary system acts like a large radionics device. The nice thing about this radionics device of cosmic proportions is that the positions of its "dials" can be calculated in advance. This allows us to determine astrological trends in advance.
There is a great advantage to knowing that the planetary system acts upon us like a large radionics device. We can develop equivalent structures to the HOE's of the zodiacal factors. When we energize these HOE's with life energy, we create our own trends. This gives us back the power of the wise of ancient times who ruled the stars. The fact that our approach is not animistic gives us the added advantage of much greater flexibility.
The Magical Squares of the Planets
The Magical Squares of the Planets
The planetary energies are an excellent system that we can use to establish trends. If the astrological system determines trends that are in effect for individuals, groups, and events, then the following lends itself to us: We can structurally connect with the factors that are determining the astrological trends and generate our own trends. This compares to establishing a greenhouse of astrological energies which we can then use at our liking.
Structural connections with planetary energies are ancient knowledge. One of the best ways to draw planetary energies are the magical squares of the planets. These squares are special numeric arrangements that establish such a connection. We know seven squares that are valid for the "classical" planets. In the sixth lesson you will find a brief description of the planetary functions and of the meaning of the astrological signs. Then you will find the planetary squares and a set of symbols that represent the signs of the Zodiac.
Practice #30: From the second part of the sixth lesson copy the magical squares of the planets. Take the squares one by one and charge them. Observe, feel, or meditatively tune into the energies. If you have a Welz generator put the magical square of the planet between the output of the generator and the structural link. Compare the feelings that you get. Make notes in your diary, if you have one.
Practice #31: Put a planet in a sign and use that as a filter for your Welz Generator. Alternately you may put it inside a triangle and draw the planetary energy by projecting life energy onto it.
The system of the Tarot is a set of archetypal representations of fields of life experience. It has a link with the zodiac and its energies. Each card represents a specific energy of a higher order. It would go too far to give you here an introduction in the tarot and into astrology. I recommend that you purchase the appropriate books and learn these systems.
Practice #32: Tune into the energies of Tarot cards using a Welz Generator or projecting life energy into the cards.
Practice #33: Put a planetary square into the radionics device. Energize the device with life energy. Then put a transfer diagram onto the stick-pad and feel the planetary energies on the second transfer diagram.
Practice #34: Do the same with cards of the Tarot. In each case it will be useful if you keep record of the radionic rates (the settings) so that you can use them in the future.
A List of Equivalent Structures
What follows is a list of some of the systems of structural links with entities that we know of. The classification into "natural" and "artificial" is somewhat arbitrary. Most artificial systems of equivalent structures have a natural basis.
The fact that equivalent structures work gives rise to many magical methods. When we think of structure, we usually think of a graphic outline. We disregard the fact that there are many more possibilities of structural linkage than alphabets and graphical sigils. We can use shapes in any sensory experience as equivalent structures. In the following you will see a list of equivalent structures, natural and artificial ones, that have proven to be useful for the establishing of structural links to persons (targets) and specific energies (trends). It will be good if you get acquainted with some of them.
Methods to Express and Establish Equivalent Structures
1. The Word (prayers, psalms, mantras, etc.)
Here you find words of power, sacred mantras, mantras that you establish with the radionics device, so-called barbarisms or formulas that you can use to call entities, the names of entities, prayers, psalms, chants, cryptic "languages," etc. Note: Many of these items are "channeled" or received in evocative processes. Consequently they invariably bear the mark of the language in which they originated. Examples: The entities of Franz Bardon's system are pronounced in German. The Enochian language has entirely English sound structure and grammar all through. Considering the speed at which language, sound pronunciation, and grammatical structures change over time one can only be amused when hearing the ludicrous claim that Enochian is a very ancient language. This however does not impair the effectiveness of the system!
In this category fall all symbols that we establish to connect with entities (HOE's). Some of these graphic symbols seem freely invented while others follow specific principles of design. In most instances an entity has a name and a sigil. Often the sigil is a graphic representation of the name following some kind of design that is based on the letters with which the name is written.
3. Things in the Environment
In this category fall objects that you can find in the environment. "Spirit" told ancient magicians, or shamans, which herbs can do what. There are powers that are attributed to gems, animals, trees, locations, etc., that connect with zodiacal signs and planets, trees that are sacred to specific gods, and much more. Studies in folklore, herbalism, and older astrology and magic books are a rich source of these correlations.
4. Body Postures, dances, hand positions, etc.
postures, hand positions, and dancing are excellent methods to serve
as structural links for specific energies.
5. The Mind
Here you have visualizations of the entities, colors, imagination of the presence of entities, specific feelings, etc.
Paraphernalia are man made objects that serve as structural links representing specific energies, entities, persons, or situations. Repeated use of a magical utensil attaches energies of a higher order to it that you then need no longer evoke in a magical practice. Consequently you can use energies for things other than routine.
7. Technological Devices
These are man made objects that are of use to establish structural links. Their characteristic is flexibility and the possibility to arbitrary settings to establish any structural link the magician chooses. The designs and look of these devices depends on fashion. A typical example is a radionics device. Another good example is an altar that you may set up to connect with any specific target and energy (spell) of your choice.
8. Logical Concepts / Abstractions (numbers, alphabets, etc.)
Whenever human beings start to use numbers and letters they assign to them magical meaning. The magical alphabets and the symbolism of numerology are good examples.
Sets of Equivalent Structures
The human characteristic to abstract, to order and to generalize led to the establishment of magical hierarchies.
Good examples are the many mythologies. Each god has a specific function. The god may be contacted with specific dances, sigils, colors, ceremonials, etc., then the god will do the bidding of the magician. Medieval grimoires are condensed mythologies that have had the purpose to provide the magician with those things that the magical practices of organized religion could not deliver. Each one of the entities in such a grimoire has its symbol and often a set of barbarisms (sounds that are not language) to call them.
In more advanced cultures the mythologies connect with the astrological system. In this case happened a shift of correlations: from correlating with natural phenomena in the direct environments the gods shifted into correlating with the powers of the planets that generate trends.
Another development is the establishing of alphabets. Each of the letters is assigned a specific meaning. Primitive logic plus tuning into metaphysical reality brought forth several sets of equivalent structures that we can regard as being true symbolisms. In these sets the position of each of its elements in relation to all other elements is of crucial significance. In all cases where such an alphabetic set connects with the astrological system we find a basis for a true symbolism.
Such sets of equivalent structures usually relate to many different methods to establish the specific structures as described above. Of a god you have a sigil, a name, a mantra to chant, a color, a metal, a planet, a letter, etc.
A good magical hierarchy is all encompassing. By this we mean that a good magical hierarchy should have the flexibility to connect with any trend that we intend to generate. The elements that we may read into the cosmic radionic device (the astrological zodiac) represent a natural hierarchy. The ten Sephiroth of the tree of life represent a system of abstractions that have a similar flexibility. The Eighteen Sacred Futhork Runes that connect with the periodic system of elements relate to a system of creative energies. Most religious and mythological systems fulfill these criteria. It has proven to be an advantage on magical work when the sets of equivalent structures of a magical system correlate with basic human experiences. These are patterns of sensory experience, established methods of thinking and communicating such as spoken language and body language, psychological structures, socially established patterns of interaction within groups and with the environment, primary abstractions, etc.
For the magician of the future it is important to choose a valid set of a magical hierarchy. Such choice needs not to be a one time commitment as demanded by religious systems. Quite to the contrary, the magician of the future knows well that a specific magical hierarchy is but one way of classifying the energies of the universe. Therefore it is useful for the magician of the future to acquaint him/herself with as many sets of equivalent structures as possible. This will give the magician a wide variety of choices of access to the energies of the universe.
Practice #35: Using the radionics device and a photograph of your room (Polaroid) develop the "mantra" to access a specific point of your choice. Then, with the same method, establish the mantra that connects with energies of the Sun. Then go ahead and chant both mantras while your partner checks the are in the room for energy.
Practice #36: Using a synthesizer and the stick pad of a radionics device to establish the sound pitch or chord first of a location or target and then of an energy. Do the same thing as described in practice #35, but have the synthesizer play the sounds.
Practice #37: Get a structural link with a location or target with the synthesizer, then use a magical square to represent a planetary energy that you send to the location or target.
