The Astral Plane of the Aether, The Akashic Field of Cosmic Memory, and the Yetzirah World of Formation

What we call the spiritual world is comprised of invisible forces of a highly intelligent nature that act through universal laws to form what we experience as “reality”. In order to understand how invisible forces behave and operate in performing a “creative process” we have to use a model as a means of conceptualizing them. Some people can get hung up on this because they mistake the concept or material model being used for the forces themselves, instead of maintaining the awareness that the model is used merely as a means of understanding how something works, because understanding is the prerequisite to utilizing these forces in being able to use them to create in a conscious manner. Universal laws form the very foundation for the “fabric of reality”, which means they’re “inherent” in every single aspect of reality, no matter what level or scale we’re examining or contemplating.

As many of you may know from reading my articles on spiritual sciences, I’m not going to try to tell you “what to think”, but rather approach this in a way that’s designed to teach you “how to think”. I’m not going to approach this from the perspective of ancient texts or established bodies of esoteric knowledge handed down to us by previous masters, but rather by describing them from a purely scientific perspective based on laws and principles. I’m going to “tie ideas together” rather than go into an in-depth explanation of each aspect that plays a part in forming a greater idea. This will provide you with the means necessary to investigate the different ideas on your own, so you can develop them in whatever way makes the most sense to you. We can only use what we first understand, so my only intent in the scope of this article is to shape a model that will facilitate a basic understanding of what the Astral Plane of Light is, what the difference between the Astral, etheric, and Akasha Fields are, and how to relate these ideas to the conscious and subconscious aspects of your own mind that you’re utilizing constantly in creating how you experience reality.

I’m going to use the model demonstrated in the Kabbalah Tree of Life to illustrate this because it provides a great model for understanding how our own mind works while also providing the tools necessary to begin using it in a more profound and precise way. For those of you who are not familiar with spiritual sciences, the Kabbalah, Tarot, Gematria, Sacred Geometry, and Planetary Archetypes of Astrology, all form different aspects of the same body of knowledge, where one can be used as a means of interpreting the other intuitively using the Law of Correspondences and Analogy. What we now call Quantum Physics is a modern day version of what used to be called Spiritual or Sacred Sciences, and is one of the few sciences that not only keeps the mind fully intact as a fundamental part of our material reality, but keeps it in the lead role in terms of what creates, maintains, and determines what we experience as reality. 

4 worlds of the Kabbalah Tree of Life

Fundamental Principles of the Mind and Reality

What’s called Universal Laws are what forms the very basis for constructing, holding together, and animating the physical world. There are seven basic universal laws, one of which is the “Law of Polarity”, which is where a single entity divides from itself to form twin aspects (represented by a triangle) that are polar opposites of each other. The interaction of these complementary opposites forms the basis for what we call “space-time” as a spatial construct that forms a “dimension”. One consolidated aspect of the mind regenerates itself to form a duplicate of itself as a mirror image that allows it to “perceive itself as another” and as a part of a greater whole. This is necessary as the means for “experiencing” itself as something specific. It divides in half forming into complementary aspects as a positive (masculine) and negative (feminine) part that appears separated and set apart from each other, while also forming the basis for a natural interaction that forms a joint experience of a shared reality. Whenever two things are combined, they give rise to a third. This idea is represented by the motif of a husband, wife, and child, where a man and woman form sexual union (combine energetically) to produce an offspring that’s a combination of both their traits in varying degrees, formed into a unique individual.

Duad - Vesica Piscis - womb of the universe
The Dyad

Even though the mind (soul) forms itself into two complementary opposites that we have come to call the conscious and subconscious, which are necessary as the means of creating, it still maintains itself as a whole or single entity which contains both complementary aspects “within it”. This can be understood by realizing that every person, man or woman, has both a masculine and feminine aspect to their nature, and create themselves and their life through the relationship formed between the conscious and subconscious aspects of their mind. These two aspects of the mind also directly correlate with the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which form different aspects of the same perception and work in tandem to create our experiences. This higher, single aspect of the mind, also called the “superconscious” or “universal soul” is formed out of what you can think of as an “archetypal matrix”. This matrix is formed out of different aspects of universal attributes, qualities, and characteristics that make-up our soul’s essence as our inner nature and moral character. Each aspect has been developed to different degrees and potencies, and as we move through various life experiences it requires us to use different parts of our character which are then developed in different ways based on how we go through these experiences.

3 aspects / levels of consciousness

This idea forms what we call “3 aspects of One essence” (Trinity or Triad), where a single reality (light formation) is formed and maintained through the interaction of complementary opposites, which comes as conscious energy that spins in a spiraling motion as it moves perpetually between opposite poles of the same frequency, forming an electromagnetic field. This is the basis for “vibration” which forms as a quivering, pulsating movement of electromagnetic energy that forms an “idea” (pattern) into a spatial, 4-dimensional luminescent object. Energy moves in spirals, forming what we call an electromagnetic field, where a concentrated beam of light is split in two and one pushes away while the other pulls together, forming a spiral that’s never able to reconcile. This takes a single point and forms it into spatial shape that expands and contracts simultaneously creating “space” as the distance between them, while also moving back and forth in a rhythmic motion between two magnetically opposite poles (North and South, positive and negative). This forms what’s now called “particle-wave duality”, which is also commonly described through the model of energetic entanglement and superposition. This is a “fundamental” principle, which means it’s not only inherent in the very basis of what we perceive as reality, but in the “invisible field” where light is drawn forth (out of nothing) and used to build physical forms. It’s a basic function of “invisible forces” that accompany and maintain the physical world as the “medium” through which energy exists, propagates, and interacts as correlated frequencies.

Practical Understanding Using your own Mind

A real easy way to understand what astral light is and how it works to make something out of nothing, is by using your own imagination. This field of Astral Light can most easily be described as the “stuff of your mind” that you use every time you think, imagine, or visualize something. Take a moment to sit quietly, clear your mind of chatter, relax, and picture a “flower” (notice that a generic shape of a flower is formed). “The flower is purple, with soft velvety petals and a white center that’s shaped like a star”. Notice that as I say a word or use attributes to describe it, you form the image in your mind and then begin developing it by continuing to think about it. This “image” formed within your mind is made out of “astral light” (also called Primordial Substance). This light originates as a gas-like liquid that’s similar to nebula (in outer space) and has an almost ghost-like quality that starts off a neutral color (greyish) and then comes alive when you start enhancing it with attributes that give it distinct qualities. This same process and substance is what forms all your memories. Clear your mind again, and this time picture yourself coming home and walking in your front door, as you walk in what do you see? Notice that you can picture the rooms of your house perfectly in what seems like a transparent or translucent image. This transparent image appears in a similar way to a reflection on glass or a shiny object. Notice that the gas-like liquid substance you use to form these images comes out of “nowhere” and is formed into a complex image instantaneously. This is the same substance that you use to form thoughts into visual imagery and to replay memories over and over in your mind, changing them slightly every time you recall them.

The Fundamental Principle of “Will”  

What’s called the “Great Work” of alchemy, which involves acquiring an understanding of your own mind and soul to become “self-made”, constitutes being able to control the Astral Plane through the mental attribute of “will” which operates through the “imagination”. Each aspect of our 3-fold mind, regenerates as a single part with 3 aspects of its own that determine how it functions in performing a specialized function in creating, maintaining, and evolving an even greater whole. The higher aspect of the superconscious forms and contains the “seed”, formed out of principles in a latent state of potential, for the entire “life-cycle” of an individual that’s brought into formation (constructed out of vivified essence) on the lower planes as the “astral body”. The term “body” isn’t referring to our physical body alone, but to the entire reality our body is formed within as a central point of reference. This idea is represented by the Monad as a dot within a greater circle, by an egg with a yolk at the center, and a sphere spinning on an axis.

Each aspect of our mind exists on a different level and scale associated with that level and has 3 aspects that form a single operation in creating and maintaining that “level and scale”. This idea can be thought of as “fields that exist within greater fields” of a similar frequency, where smaller fields propagate out of larger ones and then interact with those fields as a means of “creating” material constructs, which can more appropriately be called “mental constructs”, because what we call the material world is being shaped by our mind through our ability to “perceive it”. This idea can also be thought of as a hierarchical structure of parallel planes (also called kingdoms) where the highest one contains the whole lower one within it, and each lower plane propagates out of the upper one as it’s offspring.

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

These hierarchical planes are also polarized with each other, where all movement, whether between a higher (invisible) and lower (visible) plane, or as an inner and outer aspect of the same plane function through polarity as an interaction with itself, where both planes are outgrowths of the same frequency (patterns). This is illustrated in the axiom, “as above, so below, and as below, so above, in the miraculous working of the one thing”. The lower plane of material reality is formed as a “reflection” and “projection” of the plane directly above it. This principle is illustrated in the geometric model of the “Tetrad”, as the same principle that first forms the Dyad as polar opposites on the same plane, and then regenerates as polar opposites on a higher (inner) and lower (outer) plane as mirror images of each other. In both cases it’s the same principle operating in forming what appears to us as a “single reality”.

All material objects are accompanied by an invisible field of energy that surrounds and encases it while also permeating and inhabiting it. This invisible field is what’s often referred to as an “aura” and when perceived intuitively or captured with a kirlian camera, appears as vitalized essence that’s similar to “nebula” and naturally displays the color associated with the active part of a frequency being displayed as a “mental state”. This phenomenon can also be thought of as electrified plasma that acts to organize light-essence into a gaseous, liquid-like formation that’s in a constant state of flux and flow as an evolutionary process of becoming. It takes on a shimmering luster that fluctuates moment by moment based on the state of mind which is being formed through a constant energy exchange with everything around it. This same principle of an invisible field coupled with a material object, is referred to nowadays as dark energy, dark matter, anti-particles, virtual twin particles, and is also what forms the “phantom effect” of DNA, where a field is emitted that contains the energetic (invisible) structure that the DNA is the genetic seed for in its mature and fully developed state. It’s this field that acts as the spatial map to order (select), assemble, and animate a material form that’s a mirror image of it.

intermeshing of bio-energy fields

Particles come “into existence” out of “nowhere” (quantum plenum or vacuum), and always come as polarized pairs called “twins”. In spiritual allegories, which always use symbolic language to illustrate spiritual principles, this idea is represented in stories about twin brothers or sisters, or as brother and sister (same genetic origin) who are also husband and wife who procreate offspring as their unification. One of the main mistakes made by those trying to understand the nature of the aether or astral plane and what makes it different from what’s called the Akashic plane, is that they don’t understand that all energy and planes of existence, no exceptions, are always “polarized” and have an upper and lower level that interact with each other in producing a third level as their unification. This principle also operates within the same level or plane (linear) as an inner and outer that combine to form a single reality as a coherent field of light. The Astral plane is divided into two levels as an upper and lower, that together form a “range” of vibration as a correlated frequency. The higher and more refined the vibration, the more “information” it contains, which means the higher level of the Akasha, associated with the higher conscious mind, contains all the information inherent in the lower plane, which it acts to inform, hold together in a cohesive manner, and facilitate all the activity of the lower plane as its administrator and director.

The Akashic field of records

The Akasha of the Conscious Mind and the Astral Light of the Subconscious

The three aspects of the mind, each of which function on a different, yet parallel and cohesive level of the same mind, are called the Superconscious, Conscious, and subconscious, and combine on a fourth level as a coherent living field of consciousness in material form. If we look at the different functions of each aspect of the mind we can get a good idea of what the fundamental difference is in terms of understanding how the Astral Plane operates. Astral light is what I refer to as the “substance of the mind” that exists as a field or “medium” that transmits vibrating patterns as mental impressions (thoughts and memories) that don’t contain physical properties and are of a more subtle and refined nature. This is the plane where will, thought, and feelings are imprinted, projected and fluently transmitted, or more accurately stated, “infuse” and populate this plane, being present everywhere within it at the same time as a frequency or information as a wave-form, and is only “accessible” by those beings of a similar frequency, classification, and species.

The faculty of the mind used to create within this magnetic field is the imagination. The astral plane is called the “picture gallery of memory” because it absorbs, crystallizes, and holds thoughts formed as pictures, and is what makes a permanent record of all our actions as our soul’s memory. This field not only absorbs and records thought as memory, it also reflects the picture-memory back to us as an equivalent outer construct of light (reality) that allows us to experience the reality of our own thoughts. This is the most fundamental level of “karma”, which comes as the reconstitution of our own collective memory attained over a vast amount of time to form a coherent field of light, where we continue to “experience” our own creation, born out of our basic nature. All our thoughts, feelings, and natural behaviors are formed and evolve naturally out of our mental paradigm, which vibrates at a frequency unique to us, and is what allows each of us to experience the reality of our own making.

Self-mastery and higher consciousness

Our Higher and Lower Nature

All energy that’s organized into patterns of memory runs in “currents” that spontaneously propagate throughout the astral field and acts as a blind force that drives thoughts and mental processes in an unconscious and automatic way. This lower level of the subconscious is associated with the astral plane of the Earth and contains the memory of “instinct” and thoughtforms produced by humans out of an unconscious, emotional state. Instinct is formed as cosmic memory (patterns of activity) that’s only accessible to the species, type, and class that the memory pertains to and acts to inform with natural behaviors. This is very important to understand, because as humans we can only access, conceive, and utilize information that’s correlated to our mental paradigm, level of development, maturity, and ability to comprehend it intelligently. On the lower level of the astral plane, which we can think of as the girdle of the Earth’s atmosphere that forms the “collective unconscious”, we tend to live out of a primarily “reactive state”, driven by our emotions, where we function by repeating the same attitudes, mindset, and tendencies that we were conditioned with and that come as “natural behaviors” that are automatic in nature.

The higher level of this same polarized field is the level referred to as the Akasha, or Akashic Plane, and pertains only to “humans” as a species and classification. This is because it’s governed by the conscious mind, which is creative and self-aware, and “creates” by thinking, reasoning, and making decisions. This is the realm of “archetypes and ideals” (gods of mythology) that the conscious mind uses to fashion ideas it wants to experience in the form of memory, that it then reflects into its own subconscious as a means of directing it in what to create. This is the “creative level” of the higher mind as opposed to the “automated level” of animal instinct. The memory formed and maintained as a permanent record on this level is formed by us as our own creation born out of masterful and creative use of our own imagination. This is why it’s called the “Book of Life” or “Hall of Records” formed as an eternal and permanent record of our  conscious, intentional creations made using our will.

Superposition, Energetic Entanglement, and Interference Patterns

On the upper strata of the Astral plane two or more objects (states) may occupy the same space without interfering with each other or losing their definition. On the lower level everything is formed and transformed through combinations, where we tune into and take on the ideas and opinions of others and use them as our own, without having created them. The upper Triad is represented by primary colors, while the lower Triad is formed as complementary colors produced by combining primaries. All activities of the lower mind are formed through a process of “cause and effect”, where you’re stimulated by an outside force of some kind that instantly shifts your state of mind causing you to respond in an automatic way. Our higher mind is “causal in nature” and produces the lower reality as an “effect” or reflection of its own thoughts about itself. On the subtle plane objects can readily change their outer appearance while their inner nature remains the same. This is the part of us that incarnates into different bodies while our inner core as our character remains the same (eternal) in each incarnation. This is the level of our “Higher Self” as our “Evolutionary Ego”, which creates, interacts, and witnesses the lower plane of the unconscious mind without ever “entering into it” and becoming it in nature.

The “same idea” (archetype) can present itself in an infinite number of ways and is why the gods of mythology were known to “shape-shift” or morph into the form correlated to the persons paradigm they were communicating with. On this level symbols, emblems, and signals are not arbitrary conventions of universal forces, but are “living beings” that have an independent existence of their own outside of a material body. This is why symbols and metaphors are used to explain and describe it. Nothing is fixed or crystallized on this plane and it’s always in the process of evolving into infinite variations of the same metaphorical idea. This is what forms the inner nature and character of a person incarnate in a physical body and is what ascends the body after death and reincarnates into another body. Our soul’s collective memory is accumulated through numerous incarnations and stages of development, and between lives is synthesized into a “single image” (paradigm) that forms the “karmic seed” for the next incarnation.

Wave Interference

Our eternal soul grows and evolves itself by forming new combinations that develop new aspects of our character that are built up in an accumulative fashion and integrated into our existing memory to form a coherent whole as a vibratory frequency, called our soul’s “signature frequency”. In ancient Egypt this idea was represented by the Ankh, which was programmed with the collective memory of the soul and vibrated with the soul’s frequency, which formed the “key” necessary for entering the portal to higher dimensions. For those of you who are interested in “teleportation” currently being developed through quantum physics, you’ll realize this isn’t about “de-materializing our molecular structure”, transporting it to a distant location and then re-materializing it using the same substance, it’s about capturing the “signature frequency” of our “soul” (inner nature) and transmitting that to a different location (within the greater field), where it acts naturally to “reconstruct itself” into the same body based on “memory” as a ”time line” by drawing “essence” out of thin air (the atmosphere) that’s used to build the same physical body and outer appearance. It’s our mental state formed out of memory of our own making that forms our vibratory frequency, which also has a self-assembling mechanism inherent in it that operates through “resonance”.   

The higher level of the mind is holistic and singular in nature, and takes all experience accumulated during a particular lifetime and synthesizes it back into a single whole where it acts to evolve it. This is the level of higher consciousness, creativity, and individuality that’s independent of the lower plane, and is what acts to create the lower plane as a means of experiencing itself through its own mental construct. It’s on this level of the mind where when we concentrate on a symbolic idea a whole series of correlated ideas proliferate from it as possibilities for the same basic idea.

Monad - Vibration

This is what forms the “plenum” (also called the void or vacuum) out of which polarized particles “pop into existence” with a “life-span”, and then disappear again, or transform by annihilating each other. The plane that we evolved the “many worlds theory” out of and the concept of multiple dimensions as the plane of “superposition”. This higher region is represented in esoteric sciences by the “sun”, and the lower plane of material reality and instinct by the “moon”, which doesn’t generate light of it’s own, but merely glows with the reflection of the sun’s light. On the Tree of Life the sphere of the Sun is Tiphareth, also called Ruach (Conscious Mind or Higher Self), which sits directly above Yesod, the sphere of the moon, and projects the image formed in the imagination into the lower, subconscious mind of Yesod, which represents our “etheric double”, used as the energetic blueprint for constructing the outer world of light.

Astral Light acts as a medium and substance of thought and vibration. As we concentrate on an idea we form an image of it mentally and vitalize it with sensation, causing it to begin vibrating at the frequency associated with the idea, and its vibratory signature is impressed on and in the astral light, where they’re incorporated into our astral body and built into our outer perception as an experience. While the outer situation or circumstances may vary considerably that we combine an idea with, the experience produced using it remains consistent. All ideas impressed in this astral medium are metaphorical in nature and act to bring us a particular type of experience that follows a distinct type of theme. Here we only design the material construct for bringing us a “particular type of experience” – the material form itself isn’t important or even significant, only the experience it serves to provide us with.

Astral Realm of pure consciousness

This plane is also called “Amenti” – Halls of Amenti – where the upper world forms the substrate for the underworld as an energetic matrix for ordering, organizing, and maintaining the physical world of effect. In ancient texts this is what’s referred to as the “underworld”, which is often represented by a rectangular foundation that has a series of wavy-lines running through it, symbolizing a frequency that functions as a current, on top of which (or out of which) the physical world of activity (Assiah) takes place. The upper is reflected downward (Tetrad) as a reverse image that forms the “underlying reality” out of which the material world is emanated. This is not referring to the “hell” of Christian mythology, but rather the etheric-double used as a form of blueprint and energetic field of organized information for ordering and assembling the material world as a vehicle for the soul to express and have its being as a way of experiencing itself. All of our experiences are simultaneously formed into a single memory as a holistic idea. This higher level of astral light is represented by “fire”, which is the element of “will” and the “spark” that electrifies plasma causing it to form.

The physical body and subconscious (Nephesh) is grounded in astral light in much the same way the body is grounded in matter. It’s the source of instinct and the “storehouse of race memory”, self-preservation, preditory lusts, and all emotional impulses that drive unconscious behaviors. The only memory contained permanently in the lower region of the Earth’s atmosphere is what’s born out of unconscious impulses driven by emotion that lacks creativity and individuality. This is the source of information and memory accessed through mediumship and channeling, attained by letting their mind go blank (subduing their conscious mind) while allowing instinctual forces, the astral remnants of those already deceased, or lost souls (suicides and murder) to inhabit their mind and use their will to have a “voice”. This is self-evident by the simple fact that all information supposedly “channeled” by a medium is only what has already been created and exists as a memory, and is never unique, novel, or inventive in nature.

The astral field of the subconscious forms a dynamic stream of thought, memory, and tendencies that reside below the level conscious awareness as a receptacle of instinct, race memory, and complexes formed out of internal conflict. It’s the strata of habit and automated processes conducted out of memory inherent in the collective unconscious, and “thinks” by replaying the same memories and internal processes over and over in a redundant and habitual manner, repeating more of the same kind and type of experiences in the present as the past. Our lower mind functions primarily out of a belief-system formed out of memory of various kinds, whether we were taught, watched and heard, or that came from actual experience. The Akasha of the higher mind is the aspect that “creates” memory that is then projected into the subconscious in the form of a picture or scene, which it uses in the same way it uses the memory of instinct. This level is the “designer”, producer, director, and audience of the lower level of reality. It creates “itself” not through animal instinct or conditioning, but through the “experiences” it attains through the physical forms it acts to construct. It’s not the form, but the one that inhabits and expresses through the form as a means of knowing who it is by way of the reality formed out of its own thoughts.

The Law of the Tetrad – How we Manifest and then Act to Evolve our own Manifestation

In Sacred Geometry what’s known as the Tetrad represents the principle of material manifestation. The Tetrad corresponds with the number “4”, represented by a cube, because it’s the fourth principle to evolve out of the primary principle of the Monad, and in science “4” represents the material world. Naturally, it also represents the “4 states of matter” (electrified plasma, gaseous, liquid, and solid), and the idea that all material form is created by how the mind shapes the 4 Elements of the Astral Plane into an image, picture, or scenario of some kind in the faculty of the imagination. The geometric shape associated with the Tetrad is a diamond, which is formed as the downward “reflection” of the Triad (triangle), and when rotated 90 degrees, forms a square. When this square is illuminated with spirit (the vitalizing force), it forms into a “cube” as a 3-dimensional reality (hologram), also referred to in some systems as “Metatron’s Cube”. A cube is comprised of 6 faces, 8 points, and 12 lines, which provides us with a mathematical formula of universal principles that serve as a form of instruction in how to use our imagination as the basis for not only manifesting reality in its primary form, but also the means necessary for transforming and evolving it through a natural process of growth and development.

Triad - Vesica Piscis

The principle associated with the number 6, is represented in the subtle body by the 6th chakra of the 3rd eye, which is located near the center of the brain, and is represented symbolically as being in the center of the forehead. If we draw lines connecting our two physical eyes with the higher point located in the center of our forehead, it forms a triangle. The apex of the triangle marks the approximate location of the pineal gland, which is the endocrine gland associated with the subtle organ of the 3rd eye. This forms the Triad, symbolic of the 3 aspects of the mind in unity as a “relationship” that operates between 2 parallel planes (a higher and lower), which are polarized aspects of each other, and combine to form a single unit as a coherent reality. The symbol traditionally drawn on the forehead to represent the 3rd eye usually resembles the shape of a woman’s vagina (or fish symbol), which is symbolic of the “cosmic birth canal”, also referred to as the “Vesica Piscis” of the Dyad, through which the seeds planted from a higher level of the conscious mind gestate within the womb of the lower mind, where they’re eventually birthed as a material formation.

Tetrad Vesica Piscis

The Dyad represents the “womb” in which the Triad is formed on the inner plane of the imagination as the etheric-double, which serves as a holographic blueprint that forms the energetic structure (matrix) used to electrify, order, spatially organize, and hold together “essence” (astral substance), also called “Prima Materia”, which is then vitalized with our magnetism (life energy), causing it to “vibrate” at a frequency associated with the form. This vibrating holographic image is then used as the “lens” the soul “looks through” as the means of seeing the same idea being reflected back to it on a greater scale as a whole outer reality (sphere). The idea of the inner forming the basis for the outer, is represented symbolically by the Monad, formed as a dot (black circle) centered within a greater sphere or circle of the same kind (white circle). These circles are polarized aspects of each other, with the smaller black one in the center representing the inner world of concentrated thought and the larger white one representing the outer projection of the inward formation to form a greater reality of the same kind and type. The center is the negative, magnetic pole of our inner mind, and the outer is the positive, electric projection of the inner, forming the same idea on different scales and levels simultaneously.


The Dyad is the “identical twin” of the Monad and is formed by the Monad reproducing itself and then projecting itself outward to form a mirror image of itself, creating the illusion of itself as (in) another, or as a greater reality formed out of the same “nature” and essence, which provides the setting and basis necessary to “perceive” and “experience” itself. This principle also represents the natural relationship that’s formed between what we perceive as the inner world of thought and the outer world of reality, where reality is formed as a reflection of our own thoughts about it. We’re located within the central axis of our own higher mind, creating the illusion of the outer being separate from the inner, yet they’re both an intrinsic part of the same field of organized information (mental paradigm) being formed, held in place, and animated through our collective memory. The dot in the center represents being centrally located (as our body) within the greater reality of our own mind, which appears to expand equally in all directions at once, forming our perspective of the world as “being out there”, further enhancing the illusion of being separate from our own outer creation. The principle of the Monad is also represented by a “solar system”, where we are the central sun (Son) that produces the electromagnetic, gravitational field in which all the planetary bodies orbit as the fundamental part of a larger, organized system.

Triad becoming Tetrad

Pineal and the Subtle Organ of the 3rd Eye

I’m not going to try and describe the Pineal gland in anatomical terms, as great deal has already been written on this subject, but rather provide an intuitive interpretation of the principles involved in how it functions. All the subtle organs of the body are spiritual centers that operate as principles that form a complete interrelated circuit, each of which perform different functions in the operation of the greater whole. The subtle body is what forms the energetic matrix as an “aetheric medium” for electromagnetic impulses to work through the central nervous system to operate and regulate the physical body. Electrical impulses are formed by our “thoughts” which originate in our Pineal gland and form an electrical circuit that runs through our nervous system where they stimulate the associated endocrine glands throughout the body, causing them to produce chemical messengers called hormones. The hormones are then injected directly into the blood stream where they act to keep the body in the same “vibratory state” as the mind.

This is the most basic way our mind (soul) uses our body as a “vehicle” or physical channel for expressing within the physical plane in order to create experiences of its own thoughts (creation). All spiritual principles illustrate the process through which “thoughts become things”. It’s the process through which an invisible idea (archetype) in its potential state (unformed) is absorbed into the passive aspect of the mind (subconscious) where it’s systematically “adapted” (through resonance) to the existing paradigm and modified into a specialized version so it can be “built into the existing reality” in a logical and meaningful way. As an idea is absorbed into the mind and modified into a personalized version, it simultaneously acts to evolve the model its being adapted to, changing its fundamental structure to form a slightly new variation of itself. As we change the structure of our mental paradigm through the incorporation of new ideas, it also changes how the outer world appears to us. As we incorporate new ideas they’re homogenized into our everyday reality, and become a natural part of how we think about things.  

All ideas that are universal in nature exist in their original state as a form of metaphorical theme that can be used to create an infinite number of variations based on how they’re applied to unique situations. All ideas are metaphorical in nature and are transformed by the mind (paradigm-Monad) conceiving them by being remolded into a unique variation that’s pertinent to the individual as “their own creation”. Ideas serve as a “symbolic representation” that can be applied in numerous ways to different situations within the individuals daily life, where they can be molded into an infinite number of “variations” that all still hold true to the main idea as a metaphor. This principle is represented by what’s called “fractal patterns”, where a “parent pattern” produces “offspring” as variations of “itself” reformed through new combinations.

The pattern (design) forms a perceptual filter which is used to “perceive” the outer world and is what orders and reorganizes any situation (as a reality) to be of the “same nature” as the mind perceiving it. Our mental paradigm is comprised of a “dynamic system of mental filters” that all combine and work harmoniously in forming our “perceptual lens”. As we “look through” the lens of our paradigm, which vibrates at the frequency of our model, it literally activates (vibrates) and calls forth (separates and pulls out) in the world around us (the ether of the greater mind) only what “matches” our model and can be used to construct the reality of our model, where it’s reflected back to us as a mirror image. Everything that exists in the space around us that doesn’t match our model, remains inactive and fades into the background where it sets the stage for the active components to be acted out in a new way. In this way, all of what appears to be outside of us is created as a reflection of what exists inside of us, within our “mind’s eye”. Our third eye is what perceives the inner and outer as a single field of organized information that’s an extension and continuation of each other, rather than disjointed aspects that are set apart from each other and function independently of each other as a result.

All ideas that are conceived from higher planes of consciousness are “original” in nature and come as a correlation to “mental states” and are absorbed into the individual mind through resonance. We experience this as an idea that pops into our mind out of nowhere, inspiring us with a sense of excitement, where we initially grasp it through our ability to relate to it because it doesn’t originate from our ordinary way of thinking. As we begin thinking about it, we steadily develop it by shaping it with the same attributes and qualities as all other ideas of a similar nature, integrating it harmoniously into our model and reshaping it accordingly. As we integrate new ideas, we act to evolve our mental paradigm, allowing us to perceive deeper and more complex forms of reality. In a similar manner, as we take up a concentrated study of new subjects, we steadily incorporate those ideas into our model, upgrading and evolving it, while developing new abilities as a natural consequence. All ideas that come to us spontaneously from what appears to be a higher or outside source, are conceived into the mind through the third eye of the pineal gland, which contains the holographic image formed by the synthesis of all our experiences that have been translated into memory of ourselves.

All ideas that come as thoughts, regardless of whether they’re absorbed unilaterally from the material plane as other people’s ideas and opinions or attained from a higher plane of original ideas (genius), work through the fundamental Principle of Polarity. The “passive” always acts to draw in and become impregnated with the “seed” of the “active” principle, where the idea then undergoes a process of gestation (adapted and reshaped) where it’s formed into a unique version as it’s “mental offspring”. As long as we’re in a mentally active state we can’t conceive the ideas being projected or transmitted by another active mind. This is self-evident in simply observing discussions, where both people are projecting their ideas in a way that deflect and counter the other person’s point of view, and neither one is “listening” or actively taking into consideration what the other person is saying. It’s only when we cultivate an attitude of “understanding” by passively “listening” to what the other person is saying and forming it in our imagination as a possibility, that we not only come to understand the other person, but we also acquire a new perspective on the same idea.  When we take an attitude of simply listening to what someone is saying, and we “view” the idea from their perspective without needing to change it through our idea about the same thing, we act as a passive receptor of their expression, and we’re able to understand the idea in a new way, expanding our awareness and cultivating a sense of compassion. In this way we blend into their reality and form a unified whole with them, which serves to grow our own model of reality to include new ideas as a possibility for applying in new and more unique ways. If instead, we meet others with a need to be right, where we challenge and contest their ideas by arguing to defend ours, then we close ourselves down to new ways of perceiving things, and we hinder and impose stringent limitations to our own souls growth and our ability to flux and morph into constant new variations of ourselves that express as new possibilities.

Sacred Geometry and the Law of the Tetrad (Manifestation)

The basic function performed naturally by the subtle organ of the “mind’s eye”, also known as the faculty of the imagination, is demonstrated through the concept of the Tetrad. The material form that the outer appearance of reality takes on, results from the “internal representation” as a “transparent perceptual lens” we “look through” as the means of perceiving the same idea as a natural part of our outer reality. It doesn’t shape the whole of reality, but simply imbues it with the attributes and qualities inherent in the representation formed, which alters how it “appears to us”. All ideas willingly taken in and developed into a detailed idea by continuing to think about them in a concentrative manner, become a self-designed perceptual filter that serves to reorder the basic elements of astral light into a new configuration that’s integrated into our paradigm and becomes a natural part of our outer environment. 

The Dyad, which represents the relationship formed between two complementary aspects of the same mind, and two planes of existence (inner and outer, upper and lower) that are polar opposites of each other, or two ideas of a similar nature combined to form a new one, serves to both birth a new idea or evolve an existing one. The Dyad is formed out of the regeneration of the Monad, which represents a single unit as a holistic and self-perpetuating entity (mind). All of what we perceive as an outer reality is but a continuation or extension of our inner reality, both of which are created through our mental paradigm (hologram). Within our mind an entire ecological system exists and is projected outward to form the same mental structure on a larger scale as a greater outer reality or mental radiation. In psychological terms we refer to this as “perception”, which is formed out of the dynamic filters inherent in and used to construct our mental paradigm. Our mental model operates as a dynamic self-generating system of “metaphorical filters” that act to “select” (vibrate) and bring forward correlated aspects of the greater outer reality, while rendering others inactive, and we form a new “version” of reality as a unique possibility. Our mind is a hologram as a mental model, where every part contains the full information of the whole, and the whole is the summation of its parts.


In Quantum Physics the Principle of the Dyad is demonstrated by an “interference pattern”, which is where a wave-form propagating through space (being projected outward), enters into relationship with “itself” (a mirror image as an opposing wave-form) in everything else (a continuation of the inner to reconstruct itself as a greater whole), where the complementary waves overlap and blend into each other (resonate), and through the process of polarization, some aspects of the waveform are canceled out and contradicted, while other aspects are amplified and multiply to form a new pattern as a variation of “itself”. This “new pattern” as a new combination of attributes that organize into a new formula, form a set of correlated mental filters which are harmonious with the existing “system of filters” (model), and becomes the “lens we look through” to perceive (order and organize) an outer reality of the same nature and kind.

The Triad, the Imagination, and the Nature of Internal Representations

As two aspects of the same mind merge into each other and form a new combination as the reconfiguration of the same qualities in different degrees and measure, it forms a new mental construct as what we can easily understand as an “internal representation” (IR), which is symbolized by the Principle of the Triad. The Dyad is formed by two overlapping Monads, where the outer circle of one is at the center of the other, forming what looks like a woman’s vagina or birth canal, called the “Vesica Piscis” or “Womb of the Universe”, and we connect the centers of each one with a horizontal line, representing their shared “inner nature”, we form two levels within the birth canal. This line divides the inner realm of the two overlapping parts into two “parallel planes” (a horizontal line represents a plane or dimension) of the “same pattern” (holographic model). A triangle is then formed on the higher plane by drawing a straight line upward from the center of each one, uniting them at the highest point (pinnacle) of their combination. This transforms a single field into parallel planes that are polarized to each other (energetically entangled).

Vesica Piscis

As an IR is formed on the inner plane of the mind as a new pattern made by combining complementary aspects in new ways, it becomes the “invisible (transparent) template” for organizing an outer reality of the same fundamental nature. What tends to cause confusion in regard to this idea is that we think the IR we form of something is abstract and literal in nature, when in fact it’s actually a symbolic representation of an idea that serves as a metaphor that expresses on various scales and planes as a cohesive “theme”. This allows it to be applied to any number of situations where it’s adapted and modified through the new combination of elements present in that situation, while still providing us with the means for creating the same “kind of experience”. On the Astral Plane of the subconscious “symbols” are “things” and represent whole realities that organize and play out as metaphorical themes. Our IR doesn’t represent an actual physical situation or particular set of circumstances, but rather implies the “type of experience” produced through that situation or set of circumstances by how we internalize it.

If we then work on the lower plane of the Vesica Piscis to draw a straight line downward from the center of each sphere to connect at the lowest central point where they combine, we form a lower triangle that’s a “reflection” or “mirror (reversed) image” of the upper triangle, forming a new shape as a combination that appears as a “diamond”. This diamond, when rotated at a ninety-degree angle, forms a square, which is the symbol used to represent the material world formed out of the 4 Elements. This represents material reality, formed on a lower plane as a continuation or extension of the imaginary reality (mental construct) formed inwardly on the upper plane of the mind. The inner/upper Triad is formed as the exaltation of the combination formed by two complementary aspects. Two aspects of the same mind (conscious and subconscious) are combined in order to produce a “functional third” as a single reality that reflects back to us the reality of our thoughts, allowing us to experience ourselves through them.

A cube is formed as a three-dimensional (holographic) square that’s comprised of 6 faces constructed with 12 lines that connect 8 points, all of which are interconnected to form the “constitution” of a greater whole. Numbers always represent principles, which all unfold out of “1” (Monad), and demonstrate the relationships inherent in the whole. If we look at the cube as being comprised of two Triads, and we combine or overlap them (just like the Dyad) in their original orientation, one pointing upward and the other pointing downward, we form a Hexad, symbolized as the “Star of David” and what’s known as the “Merkabah”, which is the “light body” that exists simultaneously between two planes, and is the means of moving between parallel dimensions. The Hexad is symbolic of the harmonious interaction of two minds (Dyad) that exist on multiple planes, and when combined form a single reality as a unification or “coherent state”. The principle symbolized by 6 as being constructed out of two 3’s (Triads), is accurately interpreted as the harmonious relationship between our subconscious and self-conscious, governed by our Higher Mind, which originates on a higher plane in a unified state as a greater whole that projects the “entire reality of the lower material plane”. The upper contains the entire holographic model as a dynamic pattern of the lower, which it serves to project as an “inner and outer reality” that provides us with the means of “experiencing ourselves” in a semi-conscious manner by how we gain a sense of ourselves through our own self-created experiences.

The Monad represents the kernel or seed that contains the full information of the whole in its latent and potential state, and the Dyad represents the “polar opposite” of the same mind, that forms two opposing poles as a division of itself, where mental energy oscillates between complementary aspects of itself, forming movement as “vibration”. The Triad represents the 3-fold nature of the mind which exists as three aspects, each with a specialized function whose interaction produces a greater cohesive whole. It’s only by dividing into complementary opposites of itself, and then projecting outward form itself to produce the illusion of “space and time”, that movement naturally occurs as an electromagnetic pulsation that simultaneously generates “luminescence”, constructing the idea into a light-form that appears as a ghost-like image, also referred to as a “photon”. This phantom image originates as an idea (metaphorical pattern) that’s clothed with essence (astral light) as a vibration that’s self-organizing, self-perpetuating, and self-sustaining. It forms the energetic blueprint for spatially organizing a corresponding material body, out of which an outer reality of an equivalent nature is simultaneously radiated. One of the most basic mistakes we make in perceiving our “self” as our “soul”, comes by thinking that we’re just our body and personality, rather than realizing we are the “entire” lower plane as the “reality in which our body has it’s being”. This is demonstrated in the symbol used to represent the Monad, as a dot within a greater sphere, and in Quantum Physics as “wave-particle duality”. The particle can behave like a wave, and the wave can be collapsed into a single particle, because they vibrate at the same frequency as a “mental state”, and it’s the “state” that organizes and sustains the physical formation.

Etheric Double

Our subtle body is not only what provides the energetic template for constructing and maintaining our physical body but is also the “medium” we work through to transform and evolve our body. Our subtle body, which is also called our etheric-double, is the medium through which communication between two parallel planes of existence transpires through a process of resonance and sympathetic induction. This can be thought of as an idea in the form of a “seed” being planted in the fertile ground of the imagination, where it  takes hold and begins growing into a new possibility for manifesting as a natural and cohesive part of the already existing reality. All transformation results from making new combinations that “re-form” the pattern being used to structure light into a coherent reality. As we incorporate new ideas, we enhance and expand our mental paradigm, which “is” our subtle blueprint for producing a corresponding material reality. Our mind is what shapes and develops our subtle organism through the absorption, integration, and expression of new ideas as a way of being in the world. We can come to realize that ideas formed in our mind as “symbolic representations” for producing a particular type of experience are the means through which we grow and transform ourselves.

Reshaping Our Model of the World

Whatever ideas we take in and accept as fact, forming a belief around them, we make real through our ability to perceive them in our daily life. If we look at this process through the principles that operate through the subtle energy centers of the body, we can realize that as an idea is conceived and absorbed into our mind, we shape it into an image or reality in our imagination based on the concept we form out of it as an adaptation to our model, and how we develop it by continuing to think about. As we shape an idea in our imagination, we simultaneously form internal dialogue around it as a narrative or story we tell ourselves about it, which becomes the basis for what we say to others. As we think about, talk about, and describe or explain an idea to others, we call forth that same idea in their imagination, and it simultaneously connects us with that same idea in everything around us. As we shape an idea in our mind by imbuing it with sensory details, turning it into an internal experience, we simultaneously generate an emotional response to our own thoughts, and the emotion correlated with the imaginary idea becomes the motivating force for all our actions and behaviors that come naturally through how we express it. The emotion married to the thought-form, determines how we express that idea and what kind of experience we produce by how its expressed. What we call “reality” is formed out of our own imaginary emotional thoughts.


As we produce a reality out of our thoughts as an “experience”, we then uptake our own self-produced experiences, and integrate them back into the model that served to birth and give life to them, forming them into a “memory” of ourselves, and evolving our memory-based paradigm as a result. A memory “is” an internal representation that we naturally use as the means for consistently producing more and more of the same type of experiences. There’s a continuous “feedback loop” created as the interaction between the inner and outer, as well as between the higher and lower. As we take an idea and gestate it to produce a novel variation as an outer experience, we then reabsorb and integrate the experiences produced by translating them into more of the same kind of memory. As we evolve our mental paradigm as a parent-pattern, we evolve our outer reality in the same manner, because our paradigm is what forms our perception of reality. The inner is the “cause” that produces the outer as an “effect”, and then the outer effect produced switches polarity and becomes the cause for stimulating an equal inner effect. This cyclical cause and effect movement between the inner and outer, self and another, forms a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining rhythm that systematically upgrades and permanently modifies the etheric-blueprint that served to set it in motion in the first place. The mind is a self-constructing and self-sustaining system that “acts on itself” to evolve itself based on which aspects of itself as “qualities” it develops through a relationship of some kind that it forms with itself in another.

The Nature of the Soul – The Kabbalah Tree of Life and the Process of Self-Creation

The Kabbalah Tree of Life provides us with a symbolic diagram for understanding the true nature of our soul and how we can consciously create ourselves through the understanding and utilization of universal laws. It’s created as a hierarchical structure of “spheres of consciousness” as “states of mind” (Monads) that move an idea in a purely potential state into an actual expression of reality by steadily imposing limitations of various sorts on it as it descends from higher to lower planes that are all a dynamic and cohesive part of the same coherent reality. The human soul is represented by the central sphere (Tiphareth) that’s located on the central pillar of the Tree, and acts as the “medium” between the higher world of Archetypes as an idea in its potential (unformed) state, and the lower world of active expression where the archetype manifests as a specific entity within a reality of the same nature and with the same likeness.

Like all metaphorical ideas that are symbolic in nature and require interpretation in order to be understood, there are as many ways to interpret the Tree of Life as there are people interpreting it. And while general ideas apply as a form of overall theme that governs the nature of the interpretation itself as an intuitive form of reasoning based on the organized structure itself, the process of interpretation comes by way of a constant form of limitation that’s placed on a universal idea as adaptation to the individuals model of the world, level of esoteric knowledge, personality and identity, maturity level, and the conditions and circumstances of their life that they conform it to as a way of forming an internal representation of it as a working reality. As an idea in its potential state is brought down the planes from a universal state to a personalized expression, it’s modified by the individual mind into a new form.

All spiritual development as a higher form of consciousness (which means it’s “creative” in nature), comes through direct experience of an idea as first formed in the mind’s eye as a working concept by the individual as a form of “embodying it”, which provides the subconscious mind of the body with the means for using it to express and create as an outer reality. Higher consciousness always comes through a form of self-creating as an “individual”, whereas lower consciousness comes as a lack of individuality where spiritual doctrine is interpreted for us by another, and we simply “accept it” as gospel, so to speak, and live our life out of dogma that strips us of our true ability to create ourselves in a unique way. Our higher capacity of the mind and soul is our “creative ability” to form ourselves out of our thoughts in a unique fashion through a process of adaptation and modification. The interpretation I’m about to give is just one of many possibilities, and is not meant to take literally, but rather as the means of initiating a natural process of intuitive unfolding in your own mind. Words can never truly describe or express the nature of the divine, which can only be known through the direct (inner) experience of them, and are only approximations of an idea.

Tree of Life

The overall Structure as a Creative Process

The first thing we want to notice is the basic structure of the Tree and how it’s laid out in terms of representing different aspects of the same principles at different “levels of creation”. The Spheres of the Tree are positioned on three pillars where the central pillar is longer and ascends to a higher level and to the lowest level as a singular or equilibrated form. The central pillar is the pillar of equilibrium, and the two side pillars represent the masculine and feminine aspect, which when brought into harmony form a functional third. All spheres, whether single or double, are positioned at different levels in a descending and ascending orientation, and represent different planes as the creative process for forming a cohesive reality as the individual expression of a universal idea. The overall Tree is formed by a series of Triads as the “One” that divides itself into complementary opposites as it descends, then brings those opposites into balance as a functional third that expresses as a combination within the lower plane as a process of solidification of an idea through various levels of transformation that alter and modify it into a new and unique form.

Universal Laws for Creating Material Reality

The most basic element in understanding universal laws and how they work to create reality comes in realizing that structure, as how information is organized into an idea as a pattern, always determines how something functions and behaves, and is what provides the means for creating a material manifestation of some kind. How a system is organized into an animated pattern gives us a kind of “formula” as a creative process that we can use for bringing an idea into expression as the physical reality of the idea. All ideas can only come into physical manifestation “through us”. They require a “mental channel” (sphere of consciousness) as a vehicle in order to express as a physical reality. The soul acts as the “medium” for calling down an idea (resonating and acting to absorb it) into the mind as a thought and imaginary idea that it then uses as a form of memory for expressing to create an experience of itself as a reality.

Occult Anatomy and Kabbalah Tree of Life

The hierarchical structure of the Tree not only moves through what we can think of as seven planes of existence (which correspond to the 7 chakras of the subtle body), but also Four Worlds, which correspond to the Sacred Name of God, represented by the 4 letters of God’s name as IHVH. Each World represents a different operation in the formation and manifestation of an archetypal idea. The 4 Worlds start at the top of the Tree as the single sphere that represents the Archetypal World of ideas in their unformed (potential) state, which then undergoes a synchronized process of unfolding that ultimately acts to birth all the other spheres as its formation. It divides into polar aspects of Itself on the lower plane of Creation, as attributes and qualities necessary to form distinct characteristics, forming what’s called the “Supernal” or primary Triad that gives birth to the rest of the Triads on the Tree as a reflection and projection of itself.

Spheres 4 through 9, which form the four lower planes, is the Formative World, also known in Esoteric Sciences as the Astral-Etheric plane, where an archetypal idea is shaped by the mind of the individual soul into an actual physical reality as a unique variation of a universal idea. As it descends through various stages of formation, it forms the etheric body as the “energetic double” that provides the blueprint for producing as a physical entity and reality. The lowest sphere that’s singular in nature forms the World of Action or Manifestation as not only the physical body, but the entire outer reality of the physical body which is formed out of the same type of idea on a larger scale within the same plane.

The Tree of Life forms a hierarchical structure that moves a universal idea down into the personal realm of the soul (Astral Plane), which acts as a “medium” between the higher (pure spirit) and lower (material) planes, where it’s then used as the means for the individual soul to create itself by creating an experience of reality. The human soul, which is multidimensional in nature, uses various universal archetypes as the means of producing a “new and unique archetype” as a novel combination of universal qualities and characteristics. It takes (acts to absorb) a universal archetype as an idea of itself, and through a dynamic process of adaptation through various planes and degrees of existence, consistently modifies it into a new form of the same idea that’s bestowed with a new combination of qualities that produce unique characteristics, producing an “imaginary (inner) reality” of itself that becomes the basis for experiencing as an actual material reality. The soul “pulls an idea down” (resonates with) from the upper planes to use as the means for self-expression within the lower planes in order to create an experience of itself that it then transforms into a memory as the basis for creating itself. The soul forms itself out of various forms of integrated and assimilated memory from a unique variety of experiences that are all self-produced.

Tree of Life within the Flower of Life

Mirroring and Reflecting

If you study the nature and structure of the Tree, you realize that as it moves in a descending manner from the upper most regions to the lower regions, it does so through a dynamic series of reflecting itself as a mirror image onto the lower plane, forming a series of Triads as energetic imprints. A mirror image is a direct reflection that’s of an opposite or polar nature to the original one that’s casting it. As we look in the mirror, we’re always seeing a reverse image of ourselves, where what appears as our right side is in reality our left side, and vice versa. We’re always seeing ourselves backwards from how everyone else sees us, and so we’re never able to “see ourselves” as we truly exist in the purely material sense.

This reveals the fact that the micro and macro are of the same nature as complementary opposites of each other on both the upper and lower planes. This same principle holds true in a linear fashion on the same plane as the inner and outer reality of the material world being of a complementary nature to each other. The same pattern forms both the upper and lower world of the soul and its material manifestation on the lower planes as the inner reality and outer experience of the same nature or idea. All are produced as a reflection and projection of the “self” on different levels and planes of existence simultaneously. This idea is represented in Sacred Geometry by the Monad (sphere of consciousness), symbolized as a dot within a sphere, where the outer reality is formed as an extension or projection of the central (inner) consciousness producing it as a perception of it. This is also symbolically represented by the “compass and square” as a 90 degree angle (L shape) that’s used by the mind in constructing the material world.

In quantum physics this is observed as the nature of light (the essence of matter as photons), which exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave, and where two particles that are “born together” (of the same nature as a replication), that form the “appearance” of a single particle in two locations (Dyad), when separated at what seems like great distances, still continue to operate as if they’re “one”. They exist as polar opposites of each other located within the same wave-form of the material dimension as both an individual and the greater reality of that individual (Monad). Where “time and space” of the material plane exists as a “memory” created and maintained within the mind of the soul. Where an idea is absorbed and brought to life internally that forms the perceptual lens for perceiving as an outer reality of the same idea as a life theme.

Dyad - Vesica Pisces - Interference Pattern

Paradox and the Nature of Polarity

At the top of the Tree, a single sphere exists that acts to divide and separate from Itself as it descends into the next lower plane, forming itself as polar opposites that are complementary in nature (they act to stimulate each other into existence as an active memory).  This forms both the masculine and feminine aspects of the same idea or archetype as the spirit within a physical form. This same principle forms the basis for all of life as cellular regeneration, where the same cell forms a replication of itself as the means for self-regeneration by “dividing”, then systematically “doubling”. A single cell acts to produce all of the cells that eventually form a much greater “unified whole” as a material body that’s of a single nature. This whole material body, which appears as trillions of individual cells that have all differentiated and specialized to form all the unique and diverse working parts needed to produce a greater whole as a functioning organism, are actually the offspring of a single cell and pattern of organized- information, that together operate as a single entity, represented by the mental sphere on the central pillar of equilibrium.

Once the Supernal (Trinity) is formed in the upper plane of the Creative World as an Archetypal idea imbued with specific attributes and qualities as a “state of mind”, it “reflects itself” down into the next lower plane of Formation in a unified state on the masculine pillar of activity. As it moves from a higher plane to the next lower, it forms a zigzag movement similar to a lightning bolt that moves it from a combined state of equilibrium into an active state that reshapes, transforms, and evolves it into a new form that then reproduces on the next plane in an equalized state of harmony. As memory (archetype) is activated by directed attention as the stimulating force of consciousness, it’s drawn down into the personalized plane of the individual soul (plane of Astral Light) where it’s shaped in the mind’s eye into an actual possibility for creating as a reality. This is the sphere of Chesed, as the fourth sphere on the masculine pillar, that’s a combination of the previous three that act to birth it, that forms the first mental operation on the lower plane of Formation, as a memory formed into a possible reality in the “imagination” of the individual soul.

etheric body manifesting

It’s then shaped in the imagination as a form of universal memory that’s been specialized into a new and diverse form where it forms the inner constitution (inner nature) and all activity (outer expression) of the individual soul as a natural process of self-creation. The memory turned into an inner reality of a specialized nature, is then projected within the same plane (horizontally) as the masculine, outer aspect of the same reality. This is the mental operation as a projection of the “self” on the same plane (Sephirah (sphere) of Geburah) as the soul’s inner constitution also forming the basis for the outer reality constructed out of the same memory. The feminine of the higher plane, which is a combination as a unification of the masculine aspects, forms the masculine aspect of the lower plane as an “active state”. The imagination, which is generally considered a feminine aspect as an operation of the subconscious mind, is the active component in the lower planes of manifestation, and the masculine aspect as the perception of the outer world, normally attributed to the self-conscious mind of activity, is the passive component within the lower planes. The masculine and feminine aspects exist in polarity between the upper and lower planes, and form a fundamental paradox that’s always at play within the material world of formation.

Together, as a unique formation of archetypal memory, it returns to a unified state as it moves down into the next level (center of the Formative World of the Astral plane), and forms the basis for the “human soul” (Tiphareth) as a functional whole, which then divides from itself to form the subconscious mind of the subtle body on the lower plane (Netzach), which then separates from itself again to form the self-conscious mind (Hod) of the same plane. The Soul creates the entire lower astral realm through the faculty of the subconscious, which creates out of memory to produce both the inner and outer world of manifestation as a mental construct of itself on different scales. The subconscious then acts to birth the self-conscious aspect of the same mind as the ability to witness and experience itself through the observation of the external world produced by the projection of the internal world. Together, the subconscious and self-conscious produce a “unified whole” as the etheric body of Yesod, which acts as a blueprint for producing as a physical manifestation of both the body and its entire outer reality, all of which are all formed out of the same memory being played out on different scales simultaneously as a unified whole.

My diagram of the Tree of Life

Structure and Function as the Nature of Karma

The Tree is structured out of three vertical pillars (threefold nature of the mind, soul, and reality) that sit side-by-side that forms movement as a division and unification that form a self-perpetuating and self-sustaining system of self-regeneration. The pillars form the basis for polarity as both the feminine and masculine aspects of the same plane, formed out of or returned to an equilibrated state as the basis for the next plane that issues forth from them in a synchronistic and automatic fashion as a process of spirit “becoming” material form. The masculine aspect forms the “seed” as the archetypal idea that impregnates the feminine aspect as the memory used to organize light-essence into an equivalent material form as universal memory that acts as the basis for producing the “self” as the soul and the outer reality of the soul as the experience of itself in-form. The masculine pole represents the active, outer or greater reality as a pattern that is drawn into and acts to impregnate the feminine aspect that creates it as a material form that serves as the basis for producing a virtual or universal memory.

The single sphere of consciousness at the top that initiates the process is a universal archetype (comprised of a combination of 12 aspects to form a single idea) that’s imbued with all the attributes, qualities, characteristics, and functional tendencies that form the basis of reality as the natural “story” it tells as a form of personal mythology of the soul inhabiting it. The archetype contains in its latent and potential state all the information and self-organizing forces necessary to produce a coherent and cohesive reality as the enactment of soul memory that forms “karma” as the basis for reality as the soul’s life experience through the story it naturally acts to tell through its personality played out within the conditions and circumstances of its current life situation.

The upper Triad is reflected downward into the lower plane of Astral-Light in its dual nature, which then serves to form an even lower region within the same plane as the unification of its polar aspects. This unified field as a sphere of consciousness within the lower regions of the astral field forms what we commonly think of as our “Higher Self” that’s active as intuition within the material plane, and is what serves to organize and orchestrate the entire lower plane of material reality as the basis for the souls karma (creating reality out of memory). This configuration forms what looks like an upside down triangle or Triad oriented in a downward motion. Out of this sphere emerge dual aspects into an even lower region of the same plane as the subconscious mind that will form and inhabit the material body, and give birth to the self-conscious mind as the masculine aspect of the same nature. Together, these two aspects of the mind and soul produce a unified whole as the “etheric body” that acts as the holographic template for structuring and animating the physical body of the material realm, and is reflected downward into the lower plane as a reflection of its unified state as a single sphere of consciousness.

Qabalah Tree of Life

The Fall of the Archangels to form Humanity

On the central pillar of equilibrium there are five spheres as levels of consciousness, four of which are visible as actual laws, and one invisible as the “void” or quantum leap from a higher realm of existence to a much lower realm of material manifestation. The three visible spheres (Kether, Tiphareth, and Yesod) that exist within the unmanifest, purely mental realms of organized energy as equilibrated states, are commonly referred to as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost of the Trinity, and the manifestation of the Supernal represented by the Tetrad as the Holy name of God, comprised of four letters that are really three letters where one is repeated (IHVH).

The invisible sphere (forming the 11th sphere), which exists in-between the highest Triad and it’s reflection into the Lower regions of the Astral plane, called “Daath” (death), is symbolic of the “fall of the angels” (Archetypes as gods) to form mankind. It’s the invisible sphere of “knowledge” which only comes through “experience”. It’s the movement of the higher principles into the lower vibration of the astral plane of form, where an idea that’s “pure in nature” combines with an element of a lower plane, becoming contaminated and corrupted from its original form in order to produce a personalized version of the same idea as a unique variation.

What we think of as the Human Soul, represented by the central sphere of Tiphareth, or the “Son” of the Trinity, acts as a medium that vibrates at a frequency that’s in-between the higher and lower planes, and therefore acts as a “medium” necessary to access and “draw down” the higher consciousness of the upper plane while serving as the means for forming a personalized version by becoming the vehicle for expressing it within the lower plane of manifestation as the means of “self-creating”. The higher plane of the Supernal (upper most triad), and the lower plane of material manifestation vibrate at such different frequencies that they can’t resonate with each other, and so require a medium as a middle ground that vibrates at the lower region of the higher plane and the higher region of the lower plane so it can act as the channel or vehicle for archetypal principles to manifest as material forms of varying degrees and natures. And likewise act as the means for the memory obtained from personal manifestations to be returned to a universal state as the archetypal make-up of the soul. In the name of God represented by the Tetrad (different names of God indicate different operations), the H (which bridges together two I’s), is the second (Son as the human Soul) and the last (actual manifestation) letter of the name as the manifestation of the soul’s consciousness. All physical manifestation is of the human soul as “God made manifest”. The “I Am” as an actual entity and experience of the “Self” as an aspect of God.
