Brief Outlook on The Matrix, The Potentiator and The Significator of The Mind

Brief Outlook on The Matrix, The Potentiator and The Significator of The Mind

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 78

Questioner: I realize that we are on very difficult ground, you might say, for precise terminology. 

It is totally displaced from our system of coordinates for evaluation in our present system of language.

These early Logoi that formed in the center of the galaxy wished, I assume, to create a system of experience for the one Creator. 

Did they then start with no previous experience or information about how to do this? 

This is difficult to ask.

Ra: I am Ra. At the beginning of this creation or, as you may call it, octave there were those things known which were the harvest of the preceding octave

About the preceding creation, we know as little as we do of the octave to come. 

However, we are aware of those pieces of gathered concept which were the tools which the Creator had in the knowing of the self.

These tools were of three kinds. 

there was an awareness of the efficiency for experience of mind, body, and spirit. 

there was an awareness of the most efficacious nature or, if you will, significator of mind, body, and spirit. 

there was the awareness of two aspects of mind, of  body, and of spirit that the significator could use to balance all catalyst

You may call these two the matrix and the potentiator.

Questioner: Could you elaborate please on the nature and quality of the matrix and the potentiator?

Ra: I am Ra. 

In the mind complex 
the matrix may be described as consciousness
It has been called the Magician.

It is to be noted that of itself consciousness is unmoved

The potentiator of consciousness is the unconscious
This encompasses a vast realm of potential in the mind.

In the body 
the matrix
 may be seen as Balanced Working or Even Functioning
Note that here the matrix is always active with no means of being inactive

The potentiator of the body complex, then, may be called Wisdom for it is only through judgment that the unceasing activities and proclivities of the body complex may be experienced in useful modes.

The Matrix of the Spirit 
is what you may call the Night of the Soul or Primeval Darkness.

Again we have that which is not capable of movement or work

The potential power of this extremely receptive matrix is such that the potentiator may be seen as Lightning.

In your archetypical system called the tarot this has been refined into the concept complex of the Lightning Struck Tower

However, the original potentiator was light in its sudden and fiery form; that is, the lightning itself.

Questioner: Would you elucidate with respect to the significator you spoke of?

Ra: I am Ra. The original significators may undifferentiatedly be termed the mindthe body, and the spirit.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 79

Questioner: I would like to try to understand the archetypes of the mind of this Logos prior to the extension of the first distortion. 

In order to better understand that which we experience now I believe that this is a logical approach.

We have, as you have stated, 
the matrix, 
the potentiator, and 
the significator. 

I understand the matrix as being that which is what we call the conscious mind, but since it is also that from which the mind is made, I am at a loss to fully understand these three terms especially with respect to the time before there was a division in consciousness. 

Could you expand even more upon 
the Matrix of the Mind
the Potentiator of the Mind, and 
the Significator of the Mind, 

how they differ, and what their relationships are, please?

Ra: I am Ra.

The Matrix of Mind 
is that from which all comes
It is unmoving yet is the activator in potentiation of all mind activity

The Potentiator of the Mind 
is that great resource which may be seen as the sea into which the consciousness dips ever deeper and more thoroughly in order to create, ideate, and become more self-conscious.

The Significator of each mind, body, and spirit 
may be seen as a simple and unified concept

The Matrix of the Body 
may be seen to be a reflection in opposites of the mind; that is, unrestricted motion

The Potentiator of the Body 
then is that which, being informed, regulates activity.

The Matrix of the Spirit 
is difficult to characterize since the nature of spirit is less motile

The energies and movements of the spirit are, by far, the most profound yethaving more close association with time/space, do not have the characteristics of dynamic motion. 

Thusly one may see 

the Matrix 
as the deepest darkness and

the Potentiator of Spirit 
as the most sudden awakening, illuminating, and generative influence.

This is the description of Archetypes One through Nine before the onset of influence of the co-Creator or sub-Logos’ realization of free will.

Questioner: The first change made then for this extension of free will was to make the communication between the Matrix and the Potentiator of the Mind relatively unavailable one to the other during the incarnation. 

Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. We would perhaps rather term the condition as relatively more mystery-filled than relatively unavailable.

Questioner: The idea was then to create some type of veil between the Matrix and the Potentiator of the Mind. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

The Law of One, Book IV, Session 92

Questioner: I would like to make an analogy of when a baby is first born.

I am assuming that the Matrix of the Mind is new and undistorted and veiled from the Potentiator of the Mind and ready for that which it is to experience in the incarnation. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. Yes.

Questioner: I will read several statements and ask for Ra’s comments.

The first is:
Until an entity becomes consciously aware of the evolutionary process the Logos or intelligent energy creates the potentials for an entity to gain the experience necessary for polarization.

Would Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. This is so.

Questioner: Then, this occurs because the Potentiator of the Mind is directly connected, through the roots of the tree of mind, to the archetypical mind and to the Logos which created it and because of the veil between the Matrix and Potentiator of the Mind allows for the development of the will.

Will Ra comment on that?

Ra: I am Ra. Some untangling may be needed.

As the mind/body/spirit complex which has not yet reached the point of the conscious awareness of the process of evolution prepares for incarnation it has programmed for it a less than complete, that is to say a partially randomized, system of learnings.

The amount of randomness of potential catalyst is proportional to the newness of the mind/body/spirit complex to third density.

This, then, becomes a portion of that which you may call a potential for incarnational experience.

This is indeed carried within that portion of the mind which is of the deep mind, the architecture of which may be envisioned as being represented by that concept complex known as the Potentiator.

It is not in the archetypical mind of an entity that the potential for incarnational experience resides but in the mind/body/spirit complex’s insertion, shall we say, into the energy web of the physical vehicle and the chosen planetary environment.

However, to more deeply articulate this portion of the mind/body/spirit complex’s being-ness this archetype, the Potentiator of the Mind, may be evoked with profit to the student of its own evolution.

Questioner: Then are you saying that the source of preincarnatively programmed catalyst is the Potentiator of the Mind?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

We are suggesting that

the Potentiator of the Mind
is an archetype which may aid the adept in grasping the nature of this preincarnative and continuingly incarnative series of choices

Questioner: The third statement:

Just as free will taps intelligent infinity which yields intelligent energy which then focuses and creates the densities of this octave of experience, the Potentiator of the Mind utilizes its connection with intelligent energy and taps or potentiates the Matrix of the Mind which yields the Catalyst of the Mind.

Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is thoughtful but confused.

The Matrix of the Mind
is that which reaches just as the kinetic phase of intelligent infinity, through free will, reaches for the Logos or, in the case of the mind/body/spirit complex the sub-sub-Logos which is the free will potentiated being-ness of the mind/body/spirit complex; to intelligent infinity, Love, and all that follows from that Logos; to the Matrix or, shall we say, the conscious, waiting self of each entity, the Love or the sub-sub-Logos spinning through free will all those things which may enrich the experience of the Creator by the Creator.

It is indeed so that the biases of the potentials of a mind/body/spirit complex cause the catalyst of this entity to be unique and to form a coherent pattern that resembles the dance, full of movement, forming a many-figured tapestry of motion.

Questioner: The fourth statement:

When the Catalyst of the Mind is processed by the entity the Experience of the Mind results. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. There are subtle misdirections in this simple statement having to do with the overriding qualities of the Significator.

It is so that catalyst yields experience.

However, through free will and the faculty of imperfect memory catalyst is most often only partially used and the experience thus correspondingly skewed.

Questioner: Then, the dynamic process between the Matrix, Potentiator, Catalyst, and Experience of the Mind forms the nature of the mind or the Significator of the Mind. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. As our previous response suggests, the Significator of the Mind is both actor and acted upon.

With this exception the statement is largely correct.

Questioner: As the entity becomes consciously aware of this process it programs this activity itself before the incarnation. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.

Please keep in mind that we are discussing, not the archetypical mind, which is a resource available equally to each but unevenly usedbut that to which it speaks: the incarnational experiential process of each mind/body/spirit complex.

We wish to make this distinction clear for it is not the archetypes which live the incarnation but the conscious mind/body/spirit complex which may indeed live the incarnation without recourse to the quest for articulation of the processes of potentiation, experience, and transformation.

Questioner: Thank you.

And finally,
as each energy center becomes activated and balanced, the Transformation of the Mind is called upon more and more frequently.

When all of the energy centers are activated and balanced to a minimal degree, contact with intelligent infinity occurs; the veil is removed; and the Great Way of the Mind is called upon.

Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. No.

This is a quite eloquent look at some relationships within the archetypical mind.

However, it must be seen once again that the archetypical mind does not equal the acting incarnational mind/body/spirit complex’s progression or evolution.

Due to the first misperception we hesitate to speak to the second consideration but shall attempt clarity.

While studying the archetypical mind we may suggest that the student look at the Great Way of the Mind, not as that which is attained after contact with intelligent infinity, but rather as that portion of the archetypical mind which denotes and configures the particular framework within which the Mind, the Body, or the Spirit archetypes move.

Questioner: Turning, then, to my analogy or example of the newborn infant and its undistorted Matrix of the Mind,

this newborn infant has its subconscious mind veiled from the Matrix of the Mind.

The second archetype, the Potentiator of the Mind, is going to act at some time through the veil—though I hesitate to say through the veil since I don’t think that is a very good way of stating it—but the Potentiator of the Mind will act to create a condition such as the example I mentioned of the infant touching a hot object.

The hot object we could take as random catalyst.

The infant can either leave its hand on the hot object or rapidly remove it.

My question is, is the Potentiator of the Mind involved at all in this experience and, if so, how?

Ra: I am Ra.

The Potentiator of Mind and of Body
are both involved in the questing of the infant for new experience

The mind/body/spirit complex which is an infant has one highly developed portion which may be best studied by viewing the Significators of Mind and Body.

You notice we do not include the spirit.

That portion of a mind/body/spirit complex is not reliably developed in each and every mind/body/spirit complex.


the infant’s significant self,
which is the harvest of biases of all previous incarnational experiences, offers to this infant biases with which to meet new experience

However, the portion of the infant which may be articulated by the Matrix of the Mind is indeed unfed by experience and has the bias of reaching for this experience through free will just as intelligent energy in the kinetic phase, through free will, creates the Logos.

These sub-sub-Logoi, then, or those portions of the mind/body/spirit complex which may be articulated by consideration of the Potentiators of Mind and Body, through free will, choose to make alterations in their experiential continuum.

The results of these experiments in novelty are then recorded in the portion of the mind and body articulated by the Matrices thereof.

Questioner: Are all activities that the entity has from the state of infancy a function of the Potentiator of the Mind?

Ra: I am Ra.

although the functions of the mind are indeed paramount over those of the body, the body being the creature of the mind, certainly not all actions of a mind/body/spirit complex could be seen to be due to the potentiating qualities of the mind complex alone as the body and in some cases the spirit also potentiates action.

as a mind/body/spirit complex becomes aware of the process of spiritual evolutionmore and more of the activities of the mind and body which precipitate activity are caused by those portions of the mind/body/spirit complex which are articulated by the archetypes of Transformation.

Questioner: The Matrix of the Mind is depicted as a male on the card and the Potentiator as female.

Could Ra state why this is and how this affects these two archetypes?

Ra: I am Ra. Firstly, as we have said,

the Matrix of the Mind
is attracted to the biological male and

the Potentiator of the Mind
to the biological female.

Thusly in energy transfer
the female is able to potentiate that which may be within the conscious mind of the male so that it may feel enspirited.

In a more general sense, that which reaches may be seen as a male principle.

That which awaits the reaching may be seen as a female principle.

The richness of the male and female system of polarity is interesting and we would not comment further but suggest consideration by the student.

Questioner: I will attempt an example of the Potentiator of the Mind acting.

As the infant gains time in incarnation
would it experience the Potentiator offering both positive and negative potential thoughts, shall I say, for the Matrix to experience which then begin to accumulate in the Matrix and color it one way or the other in polarity depending upon its continuing choice of that polarity?

Is this in any way correct?

Ra: I am Ra.

again may we distinguish between the archetypical mind and the process of incarnational experience of the mind/body/spirit complex.

each potentiation which has been reached for by the Matrix is recorded by the Matrix but experienced by the Significator.

The experience of the Significator of this potentiated activity
is of course dependent upon the acuity of its processes of Catalyst and Experience.

May we ask if there are briefer queries before we leave this instrument?
