The Magic Square was carried by a Turtle. The Turtle is the symbol of the Constellation Orion. Many Ancient Cultures claim that our Ancestors came from this constellation. The Square of Lo Shu is also referred to as the Magic Square of Saturn or Chronos (Time).
According to Chinese Creation Myth the world started with 無極(wuji: nothingness), the Tao. Out of the Tao, the Egg of the Zero (0) and the Supreme Pure One (1) emerged. In the next step the Trinity (3), the Three Pure Ones, was created.
The Tao produced One; One produced Two; Two produced Three; Three produced All things (Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, 42).
The Trinity is represented by a Triangle. A combination of Two Triangels is a Square. The combination of Two (2) Triangels is also the Symbol of the Heart Chakra, the merge of Heaven, the Upper Triangel and Earth, the Lower Triangel.
The most complex Yantra (“machine”), the Sri Yantra, contains 43 Triangels. The Sri Yantra is determinated by the Bronze Mean. The Bronze Mean is a generalization of the Sequence of Fibonacci based on the Trinity. The Bronze Mean generates Quasi-Crystals and Penrose Tilings.
The Lo Shu Magic Square not only shows the Connection between the Four Forces that came out of the Two Forces, Expansion and Compression, it also shows the connection between Heaven and Earth.
In the Magic Square of Lu Shu the Even Numbers (2,4,6,8 = 2 x (1,2,3,4 = 2×2)) are Black(Yang, Male). The Odd Numbers (1,3,5,7,9 = 3×3) are White (Yin, Female). The Sum of all the Numbers is 15 (3×5).
The Even Numbers are situated at the Corners of the Square.
When the numbers of each row are multiplied (8x1x6; 3x5x7; 4x9x2) they together total to 225 ((3×5)x(3×5)) — as do those of the columns (8x3x4; 1x5x9; 6x7x2).
The Magic Square is dominated by two numbers (2**1, 2**2, 2**3) and (3, 2×3, 3**2), It contains four Prime Numbers (1,3,5,7). It also contains the first Perfect Number 6 (1+2+3 =1x2x3). 6 is also a Harmonic Divisor Number and has a Harmonic Divisor 2. The Sixth Day in the week is the day of Saturn, the God of Time.
The sequence 1,2,4,8, 1, 3,6,9, 27 is called theTetrad of the Pythagorians and was, according to Plato, used by the Demiurg, the Creator of our Universe, to create the Soul. The Soul is a mixture of the Same (1), the Different (2), and Existence (3). The Tetrad was used to define the Harmony of the Spheres.
When you connect the numbers of the Lo Shu a pattern appears that is called the Seal of Saturn or the Dance of Yu.
The Sum of Magic Squares is a Magic Square and the product of a Magic Square M with a number a is again a Magic Square aM. Both Rules can be used to construct a Magic Square out of simple Binary Squares called Magic Carpets. One of these Magic Carpets is the Identity Matrix with One on the Diagonal.
Every Magic Square is related by Rotation and Mirroring to Eight other Magic Squares. This means that the central Lo Shu Magic Square with the Five in the Middle is related to Eight other Magic Squares with the other Numbers in the Middle. One of them contains the Nine and is called the Well.
The Sum of numbers of the Well is 18 (2×9) and the sum of all opposites across the 8 Spoke Wheel = 9 (9+0, 8+1, 7+2, 6+3, 5+4). 2×9 means that there are Two Complementary Magic Squares. One Magic Square is Rotating with the Clock and the other Against the Clock.
The Nine is the most important Number in the Magic Square. The Nine comes back in many ancient mythologies like the Egyptian Pesedjet and the Greek Ennead.
When you add the separate numbers of a number (54 = 5+ 4 = 9) the result is the Remainder when you divide the number by 9. This number is called the Modulo 9 number.
The Powers of 2 (= Expansion) Mod 9 creates a pattern (1,2,4,8,(16)7,(32)5,(64)1,(128)2,…). This pattern is reversed when we divide by 2 (=Compression) (1/2 (0,5 =5), 1/4 (0,25 = 7), 1/8 (0,125 =8), 1/16 (0,625 = 4), 2,1).
The Expansion and Compression Pattern shows that the same pattern repeats itself when the Magic Square is expanded or compressed Six (6) Times. The 7th Step is the Same as the First Step.
After 2**6=64 (8×8) divisons of the cell a Specialized Cell is created, the stem cell. The same happens in Music. The Game of Chess (Chiu King in China) with its 8×8 = 64 = 2**6 Playing Board contains every possible situation of the Game of Life.
The Two-Pattern does not contain the numbers 3,6 and 9. The number 9 is repeated every time when the pattern is expanded and compressed which means that Nine is the same as the Identity, the One (1+9 = 1). 3 and 6 Oscillate (1x2x3=6 and 1+2+3 =6) and therefore represent the Duality (3+6 = 9, = the One).
If we combine the Expansion and Compression patterns a Torus (a Rotating Circle, The Wheel of Time) appears. The Zero (the Void) is in the Center and Contains the Vortex. The Vortex represents another Cycle (Black/White Hole, 3,6,9, the Wheel of Order) in which every structure/pattern is destroyed to start All Over Again.
If we subtract the numbers in the Square by the number of the Center, 5, a highly Symmetric Pattern emerges. This pattern shows that there are Two Mirror Universes both containing four Forces.
When we transform this pattern from Modulus 9 to Modulus 3 (the Trinity) we see that the number 4 equals 1 and represents a new beginning of the Cycle.
The Magic Square with the Zero in the Middle is surrounded by two Sequences of 123(4) with different Signs. The Signs are arranged in a Cyclic Pattern (- -, + -, + +, – +) that contains the Four Permutations of – and +. The Sum of the ++ and the — is -3 and +3, the Trinity. The Sum of +- en -+ is the One.
The Cyclic Pattern of + and – represents the Prisoners Dilemma that is solved by the Strategy of Tit for Tat. This strategy is applied by the Trickster, the God of Paradox, a concept of God in which God creates games that create games.
When you use the basic Addition and Multiplcation Rules of the Magic Square many important numbers and patterns appear that are related to Ancient Calenders, Symbols and Cycles.
About the Sum of Things
The Lo Shu Magic Square appeared a few years ago when I wanted to know more about Acupuncture. Acupuncture is related to the Sheng Cycle and the Sheng Cycle is related to the Lo Shu. A Magic Square is the perfect way to visualize the Constraints that control the Four Forces in our Universe.
Soon after this discovery I found out the Lo Shu is related to the Trinity and the Bronze Mean which is an abstraction of the Fibonacci Sequence. The Bronze Mean generates the Sri Yantra and so called Quasi Crystals. Quasi Crystals explain Acupuncture.
Ancient Alphabets are related to Numbers and Tones so Ancient Texts also represent Numerical Patterns and Music. You want be surprised to read that the Lo Shu showed itself in every Text Kim Veltman has analysed.
His document started a new inquiry into the pattern of the Lo Shu. During this research I detected the book “the Sum of Things” by Paul Martyn-Smith. Paul Martin-Smith worked together with Lee Burton.
This blog contains just a litte bit of the tremendous amount of information Paul Martin-Smith & Lee Burton have found about the essence of the I Tjing which is contained in just one simple 3×3 Magic Square.
If you want to know more the only thing you can do is to buy this book and start reading.
The Good (Creation) and the not-Good, the Bad (Destruction), are two Waves that are moving in Opposite Directions. Together they create interference patterns called Standing Waves.
Standing Waves are Waves that preserve their Form and can be perceived as Material Particles.
If the Good is a Wave Moving with the Clock, the Bad is a Wave Moving Against the Clock.
I believe the Good is moving with the Clock because the words “Right” and “Wrong” were associated with the Right Hand and the Left Hand and the concept “moving” (wringen in Dutch).
In Magic the Left Hand Path is associated with Black Magic and in many cultures the Left is associated with Evil.
In China the Rotation with the Clock is called the Generating Cycle and the Rotation Against the Clock the Destructing Cycle.
The Standing Waves of Matter contain the Bad and the Good in a certain proportion. Therefore every part of Nature (including the Humans) contains a piece of the Bad and a piece of the Good. That’ s why it is rather difficult to make a distinction between both of them.
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so” (Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 239–251)
About the Svara
The idea that our Universe is a Wave goes back a very long time. In Ancient Indian Philosophy the Wave of the Universe was called the Svara, the Wave of Life.
It is the manifestation of the impression on matter of the Power Which Knows Itself (Atman). The Atman arises out of the Emptyness (Brahman). The Emptyness is a Mystery. It is impossible to Reason about it.
The Svara consists of Five Types of Waves called Tattvas. They represent distinctive Forms and Vibratory Motions and are the five modifications of the Great Breath, Prana, of the Atman. Prana is called Chi in China.
The first Wave that came out of the Atman is called the Âkâsha (Spirit, Egg, Black). After this came the Vâyu (Air, the Circle, Blue), the Tejas (Fire, the Triangle, Red), the Apas (Water, the Crescent of the Moon, Silver) and the Prithivi (Earth, the Square, Yellow).
The Svara has two different States, the Bright Sun-Breath and the Dark Moon-Breath. In the first state the Svara expands, away from the Void. In the second state it contracts and moves back to the beginning.
At a certain moment we will experience the spectacular Twist of the Svara. This is the moment when Time will move back and the Apas (Aquarius, Water) will dominate the Fire (Bull) of the Tejas.
The Âkâsha and the other Four States of the Svara are the States of what Western Scientists call the Aether, the Carrier of the Standing Waves of the Universe.
About the Aether
Until the experiments of Michelson and Morley in 1887 every Physicist believed in the existence of the Aether. Everybody was very surprised when the experiments showed that the Aether was moving with a constant speed, the Speed of Light, in both directions of measurement.
Nobody questioned the experiments so a completely new theory had to be created to explain the strange behavior of Light. This new theory was the Relativity Theory of Albert Einstein.
The situation became even stranger when Niels Bohr (and others) invented Quantum Mechanics and showed that Light could be interpreted as a particle, a Photon, and a Wave.
At that time almost nobody understood the Concept of the Standing Wave. A Standing Wave is a Wave that preserves its Form and therefore shows itself as a Particle.
It is now proved that Michelson and Morley made a fatal mistake. The Unification of the Theories of Einstein and Bohr is going on but two foundations of the Theory of Einstein, the non-existence of the Aether and the Constant speed of Light, are gone.
The concept of the Aether, the Svara, is back and new theories of the Universe based on Standing Waves are produced and verified. These theories are much simpler than the old theories.
What is the Same?
The Ethical Law of Resonance states that “The Same attracts the Same and Repels the Not-the Same“. The Good attracts the Good and the Bad attacts the Bad but the Good also repels the Bad and the Bad repels the Good. If we are able to define the Same we are able to define the Good and the Bad.
When you want to find out if some Thing is the same as another Thing you have to define the concept of “the-sameness“.
Every thing is different from any other thing when you collect enough different data about both of them. When you ignore every detail every thing is the same (A = A). When two objects are literally “the same” we call this relationship an equality (A=B).
The same objects can appear differently when we Look at them differently. In this case a “the sameness” (now called a congruency) appears when we are able to create the same object when we move (translate), rotate or reflect the other object.
To find an independent reference framework for an Observer who is “not moving” and a constant Speed of Light Einstein had to abstract from Translation, Rotation, Reflection and Movement (Speed and Acceleration). Einstein’s friend Minkowski solved his problem by creating a new type of “curved” space now called Minkowski Space.
The Ancient Scientists of India not only abstracted the Aether from the Eyes like Einstein did. They abstracted the Aether from the other Four Senses too.
Every Tattva represents another Sense Organ and a related Wave pattern. The interesting point is that the Waves of the Tattva of the Eyes, the Light Waves, the Tejas, behave, exactly the way the current scientists describe.
The current Scientists ignore the fact that Humans observe their Environment with their Five Senses. The ancient Scientists not only detected five types of Waves. They also found a way to combine the Five Wave-Types into one Wave Model.
In general Objects are “the same” when we are able to find a Structure Preserving, isomorphic, transformation (F) from Object A to Object B. F(A)=B and G(B)= A and FG=Identity. With the help of an Isomorphic Transformation you are able to map a structure A to another structure B and move back to the same structure A.
Every Isomorphic transformation can be seen as a “specialized Organ“, that “looks” at Reality in its own way.
The mathematical field of Topology is concerned with the “the sameness” of objects that are Expanded and Compressed. Topology represents the Organ of the Emotions. With this organ we are able to research the effects of the Great Breath of the Prana.
About the Great Breath
With the help of isomorphic “topological” transformations it is possible to make the huge Diversity of Forms in our Universe the Same. It is even possible to compress every structure in our Universe into one structure, the structure of the Void.
In this case there are a few topological possibilities depending on the dimensions of space. In two dimensions we can choose out of the Point and the Circle, a Closed Line. In higher dimensions strange twisted structures appear such as the Moebius Ring and the Klein Bottle.
If the Universe is compressed into a Rotating Circle, The One who is in the Centre always Returns on Itself. The Universe is expanding and compressing until Eternity. At a certain time even after a huge expansion the Power of Creation is able to “Knows Itself”. This concept is called the Cyclic Universe.
If the Universe is compressed into a point, called a singularity, we live in a “Big Bang-universe“, the standard cosmological model, which will expand into Eternity.
It will be clear that the structure in the beginning determinates the way the Waves of the Universe expand.
If the Universe is Closed in Itself the Outbound Waves of the Beginning will meet the Inbound Waves of the Utmost Boundary and will create Interference Patterns that look like Standing Waves.
When the Universe was small the Interference Patterns came up almost immediately. When the Universe expanded it took more time to Close the Loop.
If the Universe is a Closed System, the Waves of the Past and the Waves of the Future will meet in the Now. At every moment in Time we are able to look into a possible Future and a possible Past.
At every moment in Time we can Change the Past and the Future if we are able to start a Powerful Negative (Destructive, Bad) or Positive (Creative, Good) Wave of our Own.
According to the Ancient Scientists the Forces of the Tattvas at a certain Level of Enfolding represented Consciouss Beings (Angels, Devils) who could be Called to help to influence the Standing Waves of Matter.
In the strange terminology of Quantum Mechanics this state is called a Quantum Superposition and the union of the waves is called Quantum Entanglement. Quantum Entanglement moves with a speed much higher than the Speed of Light.
Sometimes the fragmented Tones of the Universe unite into one Symphony when the Strings of the many Violins of the Individual Standing Waves are in Tune.
We are able to change the Past and the Future when we are in Tune with the Waves of the Universe.
About the Number Five
The symbol of the number Zero (“0”) looks like an Egg, the Âkâsha. The Âkâsha represents Space.
The name “zero” comes from the Arabic صفر, şafira, “it was empty” and the Sanskrit śūnya “void” or “empty”. The 0, Space, was Empty, Ø, before it was created.
According to many creation myths the beginning of this world, Non-Being, Ø, the Empty Set, expanded into an Egg, 0.
The Egg started to Rotate (Air, Vayu, Movement) and was splitted into the Duality (-1,1), the Crescent of the Moon (Apas), the In-Between-Moon or Half Moon (1/2).
The negative part of the Duality started to move in the Opposite Direction. At that moment the Good (Creation) and the Bad (Destruction) were created.
The Apas are the force of Contraction (Control), the Opposite of the Tejas, Fire (Desire), the Force of Expansion. The Apas wants to bring the System back to the Void.
In the Beginning the Good (Fire) was much stronger than the Bad (Water). Therefore the Universe started to Expand.
The Trinity, the Triangel (Tejas, Fire), contains three numbers (-1, 0, +1). When the first Trinity was created the Force of Fire and Desire, the Tejas, started to Expand the Trinity into more Trinities. The production of Trinities in Trinities is a Fractal Pattern (“So Above, So Below“).
The first two Triangels, the Triangel of the Trinity of the Mind of the Atman and the Trinity of the Material World, are combined into a Square (Prithivi, Earth). The Prithivi are seen as the Force of Resistance, the Opposite of Âkâsha, Space.
The Prithivi, the Square of the Four Forces, the Human, resists the movement back to the Void. The main reason is that the connection between the Spiritual World and the Material World is very strong.
The Spirit of the Human, situated in the Heart Chakra, needs Matter to create all the possible combinations of the Becoming Trinities to Experience the Fullness of Being.
The number Five can be found in the Middle of the oldest Magical Square on Earth, the Lo Shu Square. The Lo Shu Square was given to Emperor Yu the Great after the Great Flood (3117 BC) by a Turtle, the symbol of the Star System Orion.
About the Magic Square of Lo Shu
The Lo Shu Magic Square contains the numbers 1-9 (3×3). In every direction they add up to a total of 15 (3×5).
The Magic Square Constraints the Expansion of the Force of Fire and makes it possible that the Cycle moves back to the zero, the Void, the Mystery.
When we subtract all the numbers in the Magic Square with the number 5, the Zero of the Egg of the Âkâsha appears in the Middle.
The transformed Magic Square shows an interesting symmetry.
On the six “crosses” the same negative and positive Tattvas are found. The Four Tattvas are Balanced in the o, Space, the Âkâsha.
On the straight lines two symmetric patterns emerge ((-1,4,-3) and (1,2,-3)) again both positive and negative. In these patterns the 4 balances the 1 and the 3 and the 2 balances the 3 and the 1.
When we follow the Numbers of the Square from -4 to +4, the Sheng Cycle appears.
About the Sheng Cycle
The Sheng Cycle not only contains the Cycle of the Five Tattvas. It also contains Five Triangels in which One Tattvas Balances Two other Tatvass.
The number Five is the same as the Number Zero when we accept that there are Two Structures (or Two Universes). One structure rotates in the Positive Domain, The Sun, and one in the Negative Domain, The Moon.
The Square represents the Four Force of Nature who are the Four Combinations of the Two Forces of the Duality, Compression and Expansion, Yin and Yang, the Apas and the Tejas, Fire and Water, Control and Desire.
The Sheng Cycle is the major Cycle in Chinese Philosophy. It was used to explain and control the many levels of existence (State, Family, Environment, Body,..).
The Sheng Cycle moves in two directions, With the Clock (Generating, +1) and Against the Clock (Destructing, -1).
When we combine the two Cycles a 9(3×3)-fold Twisted Moebius Ring is created with the Earth in the Middle. This Cycle is represented by the Symbol of Infinity (∞). This Cycle is comparable to the Tree of Life, the Jewish Sephiroth and the Ancient Egyptian Pesedjet (the Nine).
In the Bright (positive) Part of the Moebius Ring we are in the Sun-State, Life. In the Dark (negative) Part we experience the Moon-State , Death, the Underworld (Our Twin Universe), the place where the Souls exist when they Die.
Now it becomes very clear what the Ancient Indian Scientist meant with the Dark Moon-State of the Svara. When the Wave of Life moves back to the Center, the Void, Death will become Life (“the Death will be raised“), Time will Reverse, the Universe will Compress and the Good will become the Bad.
In 1931 the US Department of Commerce assigned Edward Dewey the task of discovering the cause and underlying dynamics of the Great Depression. The US Government created a special institute the Foundation for the Study of Economic Cycles. The Institute contains a huge database of the times-series of almost every Cycle there is.
The most interesting observation of Edward Dewey is that Cycles restore themselves all the time and are influenced by other Cycles. The Cycles Resonate.
Ray Tomes, a statistical mathematician, started to do research on the time-series of the Institute. He confirmed the Insights of Dewey but with the much more powerful tools of his time he was able to dig a lot more deeper into data.
Tomes detected a relationship between the Cycles and Music, the Âkâsha. Tomes also developed a method to find the basic structure behind the Waves of the many Cycles.
Tomes found one Basic Standing Wave that generates other waves by producing Overtones. Tomes rediscovered the Svara and could also explain why the “numbers” behind the Svara are the way they are.
The explanation can be found in the so called Highly Composite Numbers (HCN). The HCN are “social” numbers with many divisors. They represent the major “harmonic” connectors in the Universe. The HCN are the opposite of the “lonely” Prime Numbers who only contain themselves.
The structure behind the HCN is self-referencial and is based on the numbers 2, 3 and 5.
About the Cyclic Universe of Paul Steinhardt
Paul Steinhardt has created a new theory about the Universe based on the Four Forces of the Square and the Void in the Center. In his theory the Universe is Cyclic. It is expanding and contracting.
The expansion of the Universe ends when the Two Major Structures (-1,1) in the Universe, called Membranes or Branes, are in Balance with the Center, the Void (0).
The two Branes are higher dimensional flat surfaces that are in parallel. The Left and the Right Brains split into many similar Cell-like Structures. We live in one of the Cells of the Cyclic Universe.
When the Universe expands the constraints of the Flat Surface (the Lo Shu Square) create a huge tension and the flat surfaces start to Ripple. The Ripples are waves that are closed in themselves (loops).
When you use your imagination you can see that the Cyclic Universe of Paul Steinhardt has a lot in common with the ancient theories of India and China with only one difference.
In the Ancient theories the creator of the Universe was “Aware of Itself” in the new theories Awareness is a Feed-Back-Loop, a Cycle.
About Ancient Spirituality and Modern Science
This blog started with the Ancient Spiritual Indian Concept of the Svara , the Wave of Life. It ends with the Modern Material Cyclical Universe of Paul Steinhardt.
In between I have tried to show that the old theories of the Self-Aware Universe and the new theories of the Endless Feed-Back Loops in Our Universe have a lot in common.
The Ancient Spiritual Scientists developed a Theory of Everything based on the principle of the Fractal Universe (“So Above, So Below“).
If the Universe is a Fractal Structure, the only thing the Modern Sciences have to do is to find the Right Level of Observation (Cells, Body, Family/Group, Culture, State, Earth, ..) of the Fractal Expansion of our Universe and the Same Laws will appear again and again.
About the Good, the Bad and the Nothing
If the Good and the Bad are Standing Waves that move With the Clock and Against the Clock it will be much more easier to determine what is Right and what is Wrong (Left).
With the Clock moves With the Flow. It generates new structures until the Limits of the Universe are reached.
Against the Clock moves Against the Flow. It destructs new structures until the Limits of the Universe are reached.
The Bad wants to Control Everything. It Fears the Good and the Future.
The Bad does not (want to )understand that The Good and the Bad are moving to the same Destination, The Nothing.
The Good gives us Joy, Pleasure and Exitement.
The Bad moves Back in Time. It wants to restore what was already there. Its final aim is the Zero, Empty Space.
The Good moves Forwards in Time. It creates new Perspectives about a Bright New Future. Its final aim is Every Thing, the Many, Infinite Space filled with an Infinite Amount of Forms.
The Bad and the Good move Back and Forth around an Unknowable Center, the Nothing, that makes Every Thing possible.
Some day the One and the Infinite, will merge, into the Impossible. When this happens the Nothing will return for a very short (1/∞) moment.
Heliopolis (Greek, “City of the Sun“), On in Coptic and Lunu (“Pillar“) in the Old Egyptian Language, was the Capital of the 13th Lower Egyptian Nome (a Province). The City was the most important Center of Science in Antiquity.
Heliopolis is now part of Cairo and completely destroyed. The only thing that is left is a lonely Obelisk, the Carrier of the famous Bnbn Stone, the Stone of Destiny.
The city was a Center of Astronomy, Geometry, Medicine, History, Mythology and Philosophy as reflected in the title of its High Priest, “Chief of Observers” or “Greatest of Seers“.
The Priests of Heliopolis were also responsible for the Calendars and therefore the “Keepers of Time“.
The city was largely destroyed in the Persian invasion of 525 BC. After the destruction of Heliopolis the Library and its Priests were moved to Alexandria, the new capital.
Heliopolis was the seat of the Sun-God Atum-Ra who was worshipped in the primary temple, which was known by the names Per-Aat (“Great House“) and Per-Atum (“House of Atum“).
Heliopolis was one of the most famous centers of knowledge in antiquity. It was visited by Solon, Plato’s teacher, Pythagoras, Herodotus, Thales, Democritus, Opheus, Homer, Jesus and his parents and many other Very Important Persons from all over the World.
Herodotus, the Historian, states that the Priests of Heliopolis, were the first to discover the Solar Year. Plato wrote that the Priests of Egypt had observed the stars for more than 10.000 years. They preserved the knowledge of the Sphinx created in the Age of the Lion thousands of years before the Ascension of the first Pharaoh and the Great Deluge.
Plato also wrote about Atlantis. This knowledge was given to Solon when he visited Heliopolis. About 9,000 years before the birth of Solon, the priests said, Atlantis was a rich island whose powerful princes conquered many of the lands of the Mediterranean. The Atlantians eventually became wicked and impious, and their island was swallowed up by the sea as a result of earthquakes.
On also played an important role in the Old and the New Bible. Joseph married a daughter of a Priest (Potipherah) of On (Genesis (41:45)). The Jewish Exodus started at On and Mary and Joseph took their little Child Jesus to Heliopolis for safekeeping when they were fleeing the soldiers of Herod, King of Israel.
The most important temple in Heliopolis was the “Mansion of the Benben“, also known as the “Mansion of the Phoenix“. In the middle of the Temple in an open courtyard, stood an Obelisk, on top of which sat the “Benben Stone“. The Benben stone looked like a small Pyramid.
The Benben Stone was seen as the solidified Seed of Atum, the Stone of Creation. It was on this stone that the Phoenix or Benu Bird would return every 12.594 years and place its new Egg. At that moment a new Era of Mankind was started. The Benu Bird came from the ‘Isle of Fire’, the mythical place where the gods were born.
The Benben Stone could be the same stone as Jacob slept on in Genesis 28:11 (Jacob’s Pillar) because there is some historical evidence that Abraham was an Egyptian Pharaoh named Djehuty or Djehutymes, Son of Thoth. This explains the important positions of Joseph and Moses.
Another important Artefact of Heliopolis was the sacred Ished (Persea) Tree, The Tree of Life, the Seat of the Benu Bird. The Tree was protected by the great Cat, a Symbol of Ra.
Ancient Egyptian ritual required the names of each pharaoh to be inscribed on the leaves of this tree during the coronation ceremony. The fruit of the Tree of Life gave Eternal Life and the Knowledge of the Cycles.
The Myths and Symbols that were used in Heliopolis are related to the Cycle of Life and the Divine Fractal. The Phoenix represents just like the Ouroboros and the Masturbating Bisexual God Atum the Creator who has Created Itself. The Tree of Life shows the fractal pattern that repeats itself when Atum enfolds itself on many levels of existence.
The Benben Stone is something different. The Benben Stone or the Stone of Destiny was a highly wanted physical attribute. Many Kings and Dictators (Hitler) spend a lot of time and money to acquire it.
According to many legends the Stone enlightened the person who was in its surroundings and produced a tremendous power. The Stone was also highly violent and distorting. It was impossible to be close to the Stone without the protection of magical rituals performed by the Priests.
In Egypt the Stone was put into the King’s Chamber of the Pyramid of Gizeh for an initiation ceremony that transformed the Pharaoh into a Living God.
During the Reign of Pharaoh Akhenaton something went wrong. Akhenaton experimented with the Benben Stone and became Addicted to it. This resulted in many physical deformities and mystical “hallucinations”. Because of this all Akhenaton started a new Monotheistic Religion based on Atum.
The Priests of Ammon revolted and Moses and Akhenaton had to leave Egypt with many followers (The Jews), carrying the Benben Stone with them. The Stone was put into the Arc of the Covenant and helped the Jews to destroy Jericho.
The destruction of Jericho by an Earthquake could explain the Destructive and Transformative Powers of the Stone. Humans are highly influenced by Strong Electro-Magnetic (E/M) Fields. E/M-field produce hallucinations and Influence the Chemistry of the Body.
Upon the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar, (2 Maccabees 2: 4-8) Jeremiah takes the Ark, the Tabernacle and the Stone and hides them in a cave on Mount Nebo.
From the times of Jeremiah the whereabouts of the Stone are not clear. Irish legends tell us that the Stone of Destiny was transported to Ireland (Tara) and ended up in the Hands of the English Kings. It is very clear that the Stone which now resides in Scotland is not a powerful stone.
Another Story is about the famous Knights Templar who dug up the Arc in 1127 and took it by ship to Italy. The following year, it was transported to a monastery in France, while its permanent home Chartres Cathedral was being prepared.
It next passed into the hands of the Cathars, due to a security risk, and they took it to a remote fortress in the Pyrenees Mountains. After escaping a nine month siege, it was then transported to Spain and resides in a cave close to Lourdes.
The Ethiopians claim that the Arc of the Covenant and the Ben Ben Stone were transported to Axum during the Reign of King Salomo by his Sun Menelik. Menelik is the Sun of King Salomo and the Queen of Sheba.
Why is the Benben Stone so Important?
When the World was almost Destroyed by the Great Deluge the Survivors detected the Cause of the Cataclysm.
The Deluge was part of a Cyclic Pattern that repeated itself every 12.594 years (half of a the Precession Cycle). They created Myths hoping this Knowledge would survive the coming 12.594 years. The Myth of the Phoenix that came from the Land of Fire was an Important Story. The Phoenix landed on the Benben Stone in Heliopolis.
They did not only create Myths they also deviced Instruments to Balance the E/M-Field of Earth to prevent the giant Earthquakes to happen again. This instrument, a huge Crystal, the Benben Stone, was put into a Pyramid at the Right Place on Earth. Comparable Devices were created at other Strategic Places on the Earth Grid.
A this moment the Balancing Infrastructure of Earth is completely Out of Order. We have to Restore it soon because the Phoenix from the Land of Fire is about to Appear Again.
The Phoenix is looking for the Benben Stone to lay down its New Egg that will trigger a New Era of Mankind, the Age of Aquarius, the Water Bearer.
In the beginning was the Void (Ø) and the Void was in Perfect Rest.
Suddenly a Burst of Creativity, a Huge Statistical Fluctuation of the Zero-Point-Field, generated the First Trinity (-0, Ø,+0). At that moment the Void (Ø) was transformed into the Egg of the Nothing (0) and the One (2**0 =1) was created.
In the next steps the Trinity expands into the Two (2**1= 2= 1+1,Ying/Yang), the Four Forces (2**2=4=3+1), the Seven Universes and the Seven Chakras (2**3= 8= 7+1) and many other Levels ((2**n)-1).
The Trinity is always Balanced in the Middle. The Sum of its parts is always 0, the Intersection of its Sets is always Empty (Ø) and the Union of its Sets is always the Whole.
Every part of the expansion of the Whole is Distinct, not Overlapping. Every expansion of the Trinity has to obey the law of voiding which means that two forces or parts that are created by an enfolding of the Trinity have to be Complementary.
Many people use, the Duality, the Binary, as their basic reasoning system. They are convinced that the World is divided into the Good and the Bad, the Rich and the Poor, the Male and the Female, the Master and the Slave, the Capitalists and the Socialists or the Producers and the Consumers.
They have transformed the Triangle of the Trinity into a Hierarchy with the most Powerful Being at the Top of the Triangle.
When we look at the original concept of the Trinity, the Top of the Trinity is “nothing” and the Two at the Bottom of the Trinity are Mirrors. They are Two Sides of the Coin of the Trinity.
Capitalism (the Rich) and Socialism (the Poor) are both striving for dominance over the other. The Rich don’t want to loose their money and the Poor want to become Rich. When the Poor are Rich a new class is waiting to fight the dominance of the old Class. In the end the only thing that persists is the Struggle for Dominance.
What Went Wrong?
According to the old Myths the First Beings were Bisexual. They were able to reproduce themselves. At a certain point in time the Creator of Our Universe, the Demiurge, created a split between the Male and the Female. From that time on Males and Females are fighting for Dominance.
The Male is the power of Compression and the Female is the Power of Expansion. Compression and Expansion generate a Spiral, a Tornado. In the Center of the Tornado is the Void. The division between Male and Female is the Power behind the Movement of the Spiral, the Cycle of History, the Path of Destiny.
During the Splitting and Merging of the Trinities Seven Separate Mirror Universes were created. We are able to detect these Universes by the influence of one of the four Forces, Gravity. The Seven Separate Universes are responsible for 6/7 (85%) of the Gravity in Our Universe, the Dark Matter.
The Stages of the enfolding of the Trinities have been named in many cultures with many different names. The Jewish Mystics named the stages the Sephirot. Their model is about the Outside World, the Body of God. The Indian Scientists named them the Chakras.
They were focused on the Inside World, the Body of Man. The Jewish Model contains the first Two Stages (7+3=10 Sephirot), the Indian Model only contains the second stage (7 Chakra’s).The main reason is that we, the Humans, live Inside the first Trinity. The first Triniy, that came out of the Ein-Sof, the Void, consists of Chokmah (Time) and Binah (Space).
What is the Big Secret?
The Human is made in the Image of God. The Body of God, the Adam Kadmon, is reflected in the Body of Man. If the Body of God, The Universe, transforms the Body of Man follows. The Universe is transforming all the time but major transformations, changes of form (paradigm shifts) are rare.
The Universe is a Highly Ordered Repeating Structure that suddenly produces a Highly Violent Chaotic Event. This happens when a Transformation takes place. The General Structure is not Chaotic at all. The big problem is that most of the Humans don’t see the Beauty, the Symmetry, behind the Chaos.
What has Happened?
Before Creation the Void, the Zero-Point-Field was in a state of Rest. At a certain moment the statistical fluctuations of the Zero-Point- Field produced a Highly Exceptional Burst, a Supreme Act of Creation, the Big Bang. At that moment Time, Space and Space/Time were created.
The Second Enfolding, the creation of the Four Forces resulted in a Huge Expansion of Space/Time. In every step a new Level (Expansion of the Void, Space, Time, Space/Time, and Expansion of Space/Time) of the Enfolding is created. At this moment many billions years after the first enfolding the Universe consists of 42 levels.
Every Level is governed by his Own Clock. The Clocks at a lower levels tick with a higher Frequency than the Clocks at a higher level. Every Clock in the Universe is governed by the Bronze Mean. The Bronze Mean generates a Fractal Pattern called a Penrose Tiling or a Quasi Crystal. These patterns are examples of structures that are Structured AND Chaotic. They are Structured when you are Aware of the Symmetries, The Beauty, behind the Pattern.
In essence Nothing went wrong. The Body of God was Splitted, Merged and Replicated on many levels. The Bodies of the Humans went through the Seven Stages of the Second Cycle. The Good and the Bad, the Male and the Female, Production and Consumption all played their role in the enfolding of the Nothing, the Infinite Potential. At this moment we are approaching the Birth of a new Level (43).
What is Going to Happen?
We are Very Close to a Next Step of the Sequence of the Bronze Mean. This 43rd step will generate a new Level in the Universe and the Human Being. In the Universe the Seven Separate Universes will Unite. In the Human the Seven Chakra’s will Merge.
When the Seven Universes merge you will be able to communicate with Comparable Conscious Beings that have enfolded in the Mirror Universes. It will be possible to visit the other Universes with your own Personal Time/Space-Ship, the Light Body.
Every Universe is connected to a Chakra. So there is a Survivor Universe (Root Chakra, The Serpents) and a Universe full of very Wise Light Beings (The Third Eye). The opening of the Veil between the Universes could explain the many strange encounters with extraterrestials that is are currently taking place.
When the Chakra’s merge a Human becomes Enlightened. Enlightment comes with a deep insight in the beauty of the Whole and the experience of Union ( Love). When a Human is Enlightened the Ego dissolves into the Collective Unconsciousness.
What will Happen until the Transformation takes Place?
The Unconsciousness of every Human knows what is going to happen. It knows that we will enter a Chaotic Period in which the Old Structures will collapse to make place for the new ones. In the new State there is no place for the Ego.
Therefore the Ego will generate Fear, Doubt and Depression until the Human finally surrenders. Until that time many Ego’s will take care of themselves without taking Care of the Others. This wil create a very instable violent state. It is not hard to imagine that this will Deepen the Crisis.
Will Every Human participate in the Transformation?
This is not certain. The expansion of the Bronze Mean shows two possibilities. One of them is a Jump into a New Level. The other is a Harmonic Structure that could be called Paradise on Earth. The choice will be to Stay in Paradise or to Move to Heaven.
The first fully programmable computer was Designed by Charles Babbage in 1837. Babbage failed to get enough money to Build his Analytical Engine. It was never build.
The failure of Charles Babbage delayed the creation of the current computer for about a 100 years.
Nobody knows that Thomas Fowler Designed and Implemented a completely different and simple wooden computer in 1840. The big difference between Babbage and Fowler was the Number System. Babbage used Base 10. Fowler used the Balanced Ternary Number System.
About the Ternary Number Systems
The balanced ternary number system is created by balancing Ternary (Base 3) Numbers around the Centre of the Number Line, 0. A balanced ternary number is a combination of negative and positive ternary numbers.
The balanced ternary number system is a very special Number System because all the basic mathematical operations, addition, subtracting, multiplication and division are accomplished by the application of very simple operations based on very special symmetries.
Symmetries are the foundation of Simplicity, Beauty and Elegance. The Engine of Fowler was a very simple and beautiful machine made out of wood.
When you want to represent a number you can start with base 1. The number 13 is represented by thirteen “1’s, “1111111111111”.
Of course you are free to use other symbols to represent the number “1”. When you want to represent 13 goats you could use 13 goat-like symbols. When you want to represent many goats the sequence of goat-like symbols becomes very long.
The next step is to group the goat-like numbers. You could group them in binary groups (11 11 11 11 11 11 1), ternary groups (111 111 111 111 1) or in every other group you want.
In every case you have to assign new symbols like “1” → “-“, “11”→ “=” and “111” → “≡”. The number 13 becomes “≡ ≡ ≡ ≡ -“.
When you have defined a grouping method you can repeat this method. The only thing you need is a new symbol “x” to represent repetition, a symbol that represents addition “+”, a rule how to read the sequence (left to right, right to left) and symbols (“(,”)”) that show what has to be combined. ≡ x (≡) + ≡ + – now means 3X3 + 3 + 1 = 13 (and not 3x(3+1 +1) = 21).
If you want to use a high base number you need many symbols to represent the numbers of the group. If you use a low base number you need many symbols to represent the repetition. An obvious strategy is to minimize the product of these two quantities. The result of this calculation is the number 3 (or better the number e)!
About Ternary Memory Systems
The number 3 is the most efficient way to represent numbers. There is much more to say about the properties of the number 3. One of these properties can be used in Databases and Storage systems.
A Balanced Ternary Storage system can be easily expanded because you can always add a new entrance in the middle. The Balanced Ternary Storage System (represented by the Arabic Mystical Lote Tree) is one of the simplest and efficient storing methods of data.
What is the reason behind this Blog?
I am writing this blog because I have spent a lot of time to research the Scientific and Spiritual Trinity. The mathematical and the spiritual theory about the Trinity have a lot in common.
The Trinity or the Ternary Number System is the most efficient, most effective and most beautiful (in terms of symmetries) way to Represent, Calculate and Store Numbers. The Trinity is therefore the most effective Way to Represent the Fractal Expansion of the Dynamic Whole.
The beginning of the Universe is a transformation of the Void (Ø) into the Nothing (0).
In the next step, the Egg of the 0 became the One (1) that splitted into the Duality (2) to become Aware of Itself.
In this case the first sequence of creation becomes Ø,0,1,2.
When we rewrite this sentence in balanced ternary language we read something else. In this case the beginning of the Universe is an expansion of the Void (0) into a negative (-1) and a positive part (1). The first sequence of creation becomes Ø (zero members of the set), (-1,0,1)(3 members of the set).
In the ternary balanced language the next expansion of the Universe is created by expanding the negative and positive part of the Universe in the Middle. A new expansion is created by adding the same structure in the Middle of the Middle of the Middle.
This expansion moves on until the system has replicated itself. At that time the expansion moves faster and faster and faster. The Self-Referencing System of the Universe, the “Divine Fractal“, is unfolding itself at an ever increasing (logaritmic) speed in a spiraling spiral pattern creating many more (negative and positive) Numbers.
At a certain point the Negative and Positive numbers are Voided in the Zero and the Universe starts to expand again.
The unfolding creates many universes and one of these Universes is our own Universe. All the time the center, the 0, the Void, stayed at the middle.
At this moment the lowest level, our level, is almost finished and a new Evolution, a Jump to a new Level, has to start. This Jump will be a Jump out of the middle, the Heart Chakra.
Is this Explanation too Simple?
This explanation is much too simple because the whole creation process is now projected into one dimension, a Line, and we are looking at the third step of the Fourty-Two (3×13+4) Steps that have happened until now.
Every split of the universe creates a new dimension. The splitted parts of the Universe, the balanced ternary trees, are Rotating Structures that contain Rotating Structures.
The other complication is that the Universe is creating its own Space and is therefore closed in itself. There is no Outside of the Universe. We are not living Inside an expanding Balloon but are travelling the Inside Surface.
When the Universe has expanded for a very long time the many dimensions are still there but they show themselves in very complicated Topological Structures like (Celtic) Knots, connected Moebius Rings, the Symbol of Infinity and the Klein Bottle, the Basic Structure behind Alchemy.
It is simply impossible to show and understand the current complexity. The only thing that is very helpful is to realize that the structure behind the Universe is a Fractal.
This means that that at every level the same structure repeats itself. When you know everything there is to know about One Level you know every thing there is to know about Every Level.
If You understand the Human Being, You understand the Universe. This principle was called by the Ancient Scientists, “So Above, So Below” and “As Within, So Without”.
The Balanced Ternary Number System or the Trinity that contains the Trinity can be used to explain Your Self.
It can be used to explain the “strange” behavior of the Brain Trinity, a combination of a Whole, the Body, A Left and a Right Brain. The “Trinity Pattern” repeats itself in every part of your body.
The pattern of Seven (The Trinity in the Trinity) shows itself as the Seven Chakra’s. The next step, the Thirteen (3×4 +1 = 13), shows itself in the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac (+ the Center, the Pole Star), the Twelve Apostles (+ Jesus) and the Twelve Knight of Arthur (+Arthur).
The Expansion of this pattern on a much deeper level also generates the Acupuncture Points (Nadi’s) in Your Body.
Why is Science not Aware of this?
The main reason can be found in the story of Thomas Fowler. He invented a Very Simple computer system but he was beaten by the Complicated system of Charles Babbage.
Babbage used the 10 base to define his Engine and he needed lots of money to create this very complicated system. He never finished his analytical engine but many years later IBM almost copied his design when they developed the IBM 360. They were, like Microsoft, experts in Marketing. They sold what the Customer wanted to buy and never took time to think about the Essence.
Thomas Fowler was a very simple man. He tried to do his best and was never aware of the power structures that controlled science and the market at that time. He wanted to help people but helping people is the stupidest thing you can do in a capitalistic system.
When an infrastructure is chosen it is almost impossible to change the infrastructure because everything that is build on top of this infrastructure becomes obsolete when the foundation is wrong. We will never be able to introduce a ternary computer infrastructure unless something happens that breaks the upper layer. Some people think this time is near.
Simplicity, Elegance, Beauty and Efficiency are not the main object of Capitalism. The main object of Capitalism is Making Profit.
What is the best Way to acquire Scientific Knowledge?
Thomas Fowler was not educated in the science of his time. He just invented the mathematics he needed. When he was educated in the science of his time he could have invented the same machine but it is much more plausible that he would have invented another Analytical Engine.
Thomas Fowler used his own judgment and his own talent to create something he thought was useful to support his own banking system (he also created a Bank!).
The Balanced Ternary Database of the Universe was called the Akasha. According to the Ancient Scientists of India every memory of the past and the future is stored in the Universe. They believed we are part of a Super Mind and this Mind knows everything that has happened or will happen.
Some people are suddenly connected to this Super Mind. They are Enlightened and find a solution for a very complicated problem in a Dream or a Trance State.
Strangely enough all of them receive or have received the same information.
What is going to happen?
The expansion of our Universe is getting into a critical state. This state is visible in all the fractal levels of our Universe.
It is visible in the Weather System, The Ecological System, The Economic System and the Cultural System. All of them are changing.
It is also visible in many Human Beings who experience the intervention of the Super-Mind in their Lives.
The big transformation must be visible in the Seven, until now not-connected universes. The other universes are currently shielded behind a Veil but this veil is slowly lifting. The movement of the Veil could explain the huge increase of Strange Encounters with Extraterrestials.
Our universe has been expanding and but very soon it will or may appear to stop. Our Universe may even begin to appear to shrink but it is not because it is reversing, heading towards some kind of big crunch but because it is folding, connecting to Itself, the Super Mind.
In the first stages of the Universe the Light was created but now we are entering a new phase where the consciousness of the Super Mind, is opening up to all the inhabitants of all the Seven Universes.
The opening of the Super Mind to all the Souls of the Universe has been named with many names in many religions all over the World (Ascension, the Golden Age, Point Omega, The Last Judgment, the Fifth World, The End of Time).
It is not clear what the connection with the Super Mind will accomplish. Many inspired scientists and prophets have tried to describe and explain this state.
One thing is sure it will be very different from the current situation where we are all isolated souls existing in many disconnected time-lines in many disconnected universes.
Infinity is a very strange concept. It is a concept we, the Humans, are unable to imagine because our Reality is Finite. Infinity is created by a division by Zero. Multiplying Zero by Infinity could be Any Number (A/∞=0, 0*∞=A). Infinity-times-Zero is an unlimited resource, the Holy Grail.
The concept 0 is not (¬) “nothing”, the empty set (Ø). The number 0 is the result of subtracting a number by Itself (A-A=0). The number 0 is the symbol of, the Middle, Balance and the Absolute Truth (A=A, I AM what I AM).
Strangely enough the name “zero” given to the symbol of the concept “0” comes from the Arabic صفر, şafira, “it was empty” and the Sanskrit śūnya “void” or “empty”. The 0 was empty, Ø, before it was created.
The symbol of the number Zero looks like an Egg. According to many creation myths the beginning of this world non-being, one point, Ø, expanded into an egg, 0 , that was splitted until infinity (-1, 0, +1).
When we use Topology we see that Infinity is “a state we will never reach” in a linear perspective. When we create a continuous mapping of the Circle to a Line extending from “negative infinity” to “positive infinity” the line of Infinity is the line that lies parallel to the original line. Negative and positive infinity close in one “impossible” point that can easily be reached by moving through the cycle but cannot be reached by a Line.
The tragic of the Circle is that we always come back at the same point:
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know it for the first time.
To learn or to get new experiences we have to jump out of the cycle. In this case the circle becomes a spiral and we move from one level of circulating to a new level of circulating.
The big problem of the spiral is that we never will reach the end. We will never find what we are looking for. We keep on moving.
But somewhere on the circle and the spiral lies the “magical zero”, the connection to the void, the gate, the primal source, our final destiny.
The great path has no gates,
Yet thousands of roads enter it.
When one passes through this gateless gate,
He walks freely between heaven and hell
The empty set, Ø, is created by paradox, I AM AND I AM NOT.
To Jump out of the Cycle and the Spiral we have to find the gateless gate.
I am fluctuating between NO(0)-THING and The ONE (1)
I am a Wave.
I am the Void, Ø, AND I am the Egg of Creation (0).
The Dogon are an ethnic group located mainly in the administrative districts of Bandiagara and Douentza in Mali, West Africa.
The Dogons claim that they are related to an extraterrestrial civilization that came from Sirius. They show a spectacular insight in Science and Astronomy.
The Myths of the Dogon have been researched by Vladimir V. Rubtsov, Chairman of the Research Institute On Anomalous Phenomena (RIAP), Kharkov, Ukraine and Robert Temple (The Sirius Mystery).
Their conclusion is that the Dogons have been aware of many recently established scientific facts about the history and structure of the Universe and the Sirius System.
The Myths and Symbols of the Dogon are highly related to the Myths and Symbols of the Old Egyptian Culture.
Laird Scranton (the Sacred Symbols of the Dogon) compared the Egyptian Culture with the Dogon Culture. He substituted the pictures of Dogon for equivalent glyph-shapes in Egyptian words and created a new way of reading and interpreting the Egyptian hieroglyphs.
In the end of the book he re-creates a highly mathematical language. This language uses building blocks that are expressed in numbers, symbols and sounds. Just like mathematics higher level symbols are combination of the basic building blocks. Major symbols are also connected to male and female Deities.
Scranton is conviced that the creators of this highly structured language were aware of a Theory of Everything that is highly comparable to what is now called String Theory. The myths of the Dogon are also highly related to old Chinese Science, Alchemy and the Kabbalah.
The following story is a very small part of the complete myths of the Dogon in M. Griaule, G. Dieterlen. The Pale Fox. Chino Valley: Continuum Foundation, 1986.
Amma is the Dogon name for Amen or Ammon. Amma is described as the intelligent consciousness behind all of creation and the awareness within all beings. Amma is ‘He Who Rests Upon Nothing’.
The supreme god Amma made the whole Universe within a grain of po. This grain was located inside the “Egg of the World”, it spun and scattered the particles of matter in a sonorous and luminous motion, remaining, however, inaudible and invisible.
Amma placed his Word in the Po, thus making it the ‘Image of the creator’ and ‘the Womb of Amma’ (The Centre of the Universe, A Black Hole).
Amma placed seven ‘Words‘ in the po, which began to vibrate strongly within the seed. The spiraling vibrations caused four clavicles (The Four Powers, Earth, Wind, Fire and Air) to grow forth from the po. (This is one of the many references to String Theory).
Suddenly, the Po burst forth, and eight new seeds were created. Amma planted these seeds in his egg near the clavicles of the Po.
With these eight seeds, Amma intended to create eight celestial beings – four male and four female (The Egyptian Neter). The Dogon called these beings the Nommo Anagonno, ‘The Word that Became the Fish-Man‘.
The Nommo are the first beings created by Amma, and they are amphibious celestial creatures.
These Eight beings were going to be Amma’s perfect creation. The four fish-twins were going to make each other fertile, complete, and blessed with heavenly happiness and fulfillment.
However, one of the male twins – Ogo (the Egyptian Set) – grew impatient. Instead of awaiting patiently the completion of the Amma’s work, he hurriedly made an “Ark” and rushed into space, wishing “to look at the world”.
After several voyages, Ogo landed on the Earth and turned into the pale fox or fennec or Jackal, named Yurugu.
To purify the Universe, Amma decided to sacrifice one of the completed Nommo twins – Nommo Semi (the Egyptian Osiris). Nommo Semi was composed of both a male and female Nommo Anagonno, and was a complete and perfect Being onto itself.
Amma lifted Nommo Semi out of the celestial waters and tied the androgynous fish to the Kilena (Mother of charcoal) tree. In one swift cut, Amma sliced the umbilical cord and genitals of Nommo Semi.
The sacrificed Nommo’s blood & life force – Nyama – emptied from its naval and groin. Semi died a suffering and painful death.
One day called Taba Tolo – the reuniting of the two placentas – will occur. At that day a strong purifying stream of Nyama will pour down on the Sun and Earth from Sirius. This stream will wash away the corrupt order of Ogo and immortalize the sons and daughters of the Nommo.
