The Pentad, symbolized as a five-pointed star, represents the Quintessence, as the fifth being or Element of the mind and soul. The fifth Element represents the Ether or Etheric body that encompasses and infuses the 4 Elements of the material realm – electrified plasma, gases, liquids, and solids – into a “living form” that they can’t create or achieve on their own. It symbolizes mind-over-matter in the sense that the mind, as the electromagnetic energy field of all physical form is what serves to organize matter into a holistic form, through a growth process of self-replicating and regeneration of a single cell, which contains all the information for the whole body that undergoes a systematic regeneration of itself, while specializing each aspect to become an individual part and function in harmony with the greater whole.
The whole (one) enters into relationship with itself as a part. The whole contains all the parts that it’s comprised of as a unique formula and variation of the same information at different ratios and scales, and the part contains the full information of the whole and exists as a replica of it. This is represented as DNA, both spiritual (soul) and physical (body), that brings two whole sequences of information (memory) together, to form a third sequence as a new whole, that’s comprised of different combinations of compatible information from the two, as the primary law of three-in-one. The One as a whole being, is dual in nature, and contains both electric and magnetic forces that act as a “switching mechanism” that activates and turns on some information, while deactivating and causing other information to remain in a latent state of potential. The electromagnetic field also forms the etheric hologram as the spatial blueprint for organizing, growing, and regenerating itself through space and time.
All growth and regeneration in Nature takes place through a natural process called the Fibonacci Sequence as the Golden Ratio, and are the secrets of harmony and beauty as the relationship of the parts with the whole. Symmetry (duality) and harmony (resonance) are an essential part of all natural phenomena. The Fibonacci Sequence is where you take any two numbers and add them together to create a new number as their sum total, then add the last one in relationship to the total, to get a new total, and so on. Example: 0 + 1 =1; 1 + 1 = 2; 1 + 2 = 3; 2 + 3 = 5; 3 + 5 = 8; 5 + 8 = 13; 8 + 13 = 21; 13 + 21 = 34; and so on. Once you develop a whole sequence, the relationship as the ratio between the last and the second to last, comes out close to Phi, which is represented by the number 1.618.
Five represents the Phi relationship through halving and doubling, demonstrated by the relationship of 2 + 3 = 5. The relationship between the 2 and 3 is one of symmetry, because if you take the 2 and divide it into equal parts of 1, then add the part (1) to the whole (2), you get 3. Three exists as 1 ½ of 2. All growth and development throughout Nature comes about through symmetry as the Golden Ratio, represented mathematically by Phi. Not as a number per say, but as a relationship of the parts with the whole, which exists in harmony with each other at different scales, levels, and magnitudes. All parts exist in a harmonious ratio to each other as half’s and doubles. The cellular structure of a living organism grows through a regenerative process of doubling. One cell divides and regenerates itself as two, then regenerates by doubling, becoming four, then becoming 8, then 16, then 32, and so on.
The star has always been the symbol of excellence, power, and authority. It’s used in rating systems, military ranking, fame as stardom, excellence as superstars, and conveys a deep seated association with excellence and brilliance. In many spiritual traditions it was the symbol used to ward off evil. An upright star with the single tip triangle at the top center, with the other four at angles below it, represents the soul’s ability to master the 4 Elements of material existence which require it to resist evil. The Pentagram reversed, with the 4 Elements above the single tip triangle at the bottom, represents the Elements controlling and using the mind to create. The devil (lived spelt backwards), was represented by the mythological god called “Pan”, portrayed as part human, part animal, with two horns (divided mind), red hair (passionate), and a goats body from the waist down (sexual organs) with hooves and a tail, and represented the lustful fertility of nature, which when engaged in fluently without good judgment, induces “panic” (anxiety) or “pandemonium” (disorder and confusion), as acquiring “daemons”. Not in the sense of what we normally think of as demonic, and therefor evil, but as raw elemental energies that are animal-like qualities, that eventually take control of our mind and will, producing our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, and acting to degrade the soul by becoming more animal-like in nature. We become like animals when we can’t resist sexual temptation, and randomly breed with anyone.
The symbol of the Pentad (shape created by connecting the outer tips of the star together with straight lines), represents a doorway, through which we move to a higher level through our ability to tame and control our animal passions, where a form of “birth” takes place as a symbol of spiritual rising. In the body, the Pentad is represented as the throat chakra, that forms a link that connects thoughts, imagination, and the spoken word (which creates and calls forth our reality), with our body as the four lower chakras of feeling connection to the material world, emotional states that form our sense of self, sexual arousal and mating, and survival as instinct, that replaces conscious thought with automatic (instinctual) activities. By realizing that we are a soul-mind within a body, and not of our body, we can begin identifying with our true nature and gain control over the forces of the material world, and as a result, begin managing them intentionally, creating ourselves by way of them in a deliberate and purposeful manner. This is true empowerment that allows us to become the authority within our own lives and strive to achieve personal excellence.
Regeneration comes as fractals that produce another whole like itself from a part. Not only from their seeds, but through propagation of the part to produce a new whole. We not only reproduce physically by bearing children with the same appearance and character as we have, but also emotionally, psychologically, and perceptually, as a product of our mental paradigm. Our model of the world, as a dynamic pattern of interwoven memories, meaning, beliefs, values, preferences, tendencies, temperament, and so on, systematically produce or inner and outer reality as fractals of each other. As holograms of each other at different scales, magnitude, and levels. When we draw a star, the center forms into another pentad. The shape of the Pentad comes from connecting all of the outer tips of the star with straight lines. The same shape is produced inwardly at the center, where another star can be drawn, producing another Pentagram on smaller and smaller scales. This represents the holographic effect of the outer and inner being formed from the same pattern at different scales and interwoven levels as parallel dimensions that together form a larger cohesive dimension.
The spiritual, invisible realm of pure subtle (scalar) energy, forms the electromagnetic field of the etheric body as a hologram, which acts as a spatial blueprint for organizing and forming the physical body as the same “entity” on multiple levels and dimensions, represented by the 5 Elements (Ether, charged plasma, gas, liquid, and solid) , which together act as one. Likewise, the inner reality of our thoughts and visions, are projected outward and superimposed over the outer reality, (re)forming it through our perception of it, to be a correspondence to our inner reality as a greater and more complex version. All of which is created through a holographic form of regeneration on multiple levels and scales simultaneously.
Phi symbolizes symmetry as halving and doubling that forms the same shape at different scales that are of the same ratio proportionately. While Phi is represented by a number (1.618), it’s really a relationship of the one with itself at many different scales and levels. It’ the relationship of the part with the whole, as a proportionately smaller version, and the whole with a part, all of which are of the same nature, characteristics, and type (classification). Phi represents the “ideal” as the “Golden Ratio”, where different sequences become more exact at different scales. It represents an “ideal” (excellence) as a value. A value that becomes a self-replicating rhythm, like mirrors facing each other, where the image becomes smaller and smaller each time it’s reflected. You don’t have to be able to see or know the whole in order to understand it, because the part resembles the whole, and operates by the same values and principles. We can know the whole by studying the part.
When we cut a line in half, we think we’ve created a Dyad (2 equal parts), but Dyads exist in the most general sense as a primary form of illusion, and only serve to birth the Triad as a combination. Equal parts are not of the same proportion as the whole, and act to cancel each other out. Something only comes into existence through what seems like an imbalance or emphasis of some kind. Not as an actual imbalance, but as a larger part that’s proportionate to the smaller part, which are of the same ratio as the greater whole of which they’re both a part of. The Golden Mean is the only way to divide the line, so that the part and the whole relate to each other in the same way, where the smaller part exists at the same ratio as the whole, on a smaller scale.
Phi is a relationship between the parts and the whole as an accumulative process. A unified whole (both greater and smaller) interacts with itself, in a self-replicating manner. The part is a hologram that’s geometrically of the same ratio (same pattern and measure) to the whole, and directly relates to it. Whenever we bring two things together, a third is formed through the interference pattern created as the relationship between them that cancels out some aspects while amplifying others. This creates the 3-in-1 Law as the One dividing into parts at different scales that all relate and interact with each other in a dynamic way, which creates a new emphasis, and produces a new expression as a variation out of shared complementary qualities. These three aspects of the same thing exist in harmony, and are uniquely proportioned so that the whole is of the same ratio (pattern) as the part (fractal). Our inner reality as a pattern and our outer reality are directly correlated to each other, and are of the same nature, because the greater mind on a still higher scale, is producing and coordinating both of them.
The Pentad as the Quintessence, regenerates through the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Ratio of Phi, producing holograms of the same frequency as a self-organizing pattern that regenerates at different scales producing what we call reality and our self as a part of that reality. The outer is always acting on the inner, and the inner contains and produces the outer. They exist in exact proportion to each other as the same idea being coordinated and played out on different scales. Vibratory frequency as subtle energy produces an electromagnetic field as the subtle body or hologram that’s used as the spatial blueprint for growing and developing the physical body as a 3-D biological form, through cellular regeneration. The cell contains the information of the whole as DNA, which is comprised of two complementary aspects that together form a new whole by matching 3 codons in each sequence. Each part is produced by different combinations of the same information, which differentiates and specializes it into a single part or function of a greater whole through what’s “turned on” and what’s “turned off” in a sequence that then grows into a unique aspect.
Whatever becomes emphasized (activated) through a greater proportion and potency, becomes expressed materially. The two entities form a third as the remix of the same information, that forms and imbalance as an emphasis, which produces the physical equivalent as both and individual body and an outer reality in which that body is a part. The outer and the inner are of the same hologram on different scales, and between higher and lower dimensions. As above, so below. As within, so without. The Pentagram represents our creative power to act as an authority in our own life, to develop ourselves into an ideal that simultaneously changes the outer reality and how we experience ourselves within that reality. All of which we are created through the relationship of the mind (spirit) and the 4 Elements of the material domain.
